Fairbairn-Sykes Kilt Pin

The Fairbairn-Sykes Kilt Pin is now available to buy!
Please have a look at my website for ordering details and delivery times.

The design is based on the Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife, more commonly known as the Royal Marines Commando Dagger as it features in their insignia. The knife was made famous in World War II when issued to the British Commandos, the Airborn Forces, SAS and many other units, especially for the Normandy Landings in June 1944. (wikipedia)

The Kilt Pin is cast from solid Sterling Silver and each one is stamped with it's own edition number.  It measure 95mm in length and has an oxidised black handle and a brush finished blade.  The pin is made from a strong, silver coloured base metal and his hinged at the top with a rollover catch.  The Kilt Pin is hallmarked in Edinburgh and comes in a presentation box with a certificate of authenticity.
