    You are pretty close to right. Fairbairn spent decades serving in Asia (Korea with the Royal Marines and China with the Shang Hai Police. He studied martial arts and weaponry during his time with the SHP. The FS knife was designed from the same basic features the Chinese gangs' knives possessed.



    See the late Peter Rollins book: The Legend of WE Fairbairn; Gentleman and Warrior.

    For a shorter dagger, I really like Cold Steel's Counter Point Tac.

    I rather like King Tut's dagger, seems like a great tool to wear to BBQ and other events when you want to show fancy and unique Warrior wares. Imagine: a knife made from meteorite iron alloys.... Ain't likely anyone
    else would have such a unique weapon.

    Proper development of the 'Warrior Spirit', training and physical conditioning before 'The Event' cannot be overstated.

    I would imagine he used that dagger on a lot of people wanting to overthrow the family and kingdom, and to please the gods. Nowdays you can get a knife made of meteorite.

    The village of Maniago was established in the year of our Lord 981 (according to the carved stone at the entrance to the community) . It has been famous for almost that long for the production of arms and armor. Neat place to visit.

    The Arditi caught my eye, too.

    I'll have to drop by there and take a look at one of those someday. I drive right by their warehouse and showroom 2-3 times a month at least.
