NEW William Rodgers Commando Knife Black SHEFFIELD 180B

William Rodgers Authentic Fairbairn Sykes Commando Knife
With Black Blade, Black Handle & Metal-Tip Leather Leg Sheath, Made in Sheffield, England - BRAND NEW IN BOX!


For your consideration today, we have a NEW British Commando knife made by William Rodgers in Sheffield, England (180B).  This is the famous Fairbairn Sykes Commando Knife -- guaranteed GENUINE!

This Commando Dagger features a black blade and black handle.  The Commandos were formed during 1940 at the strategic directive of Winston Churchill and following a suggestion to the War Office by Captains W.E. Fairbairn & E.A. Sykes they were equipped with a new style fighting knife in early 1941.  The modified design of the Third Pattern Commando Dagger introduced in 1943 has withstood the test of time and is still issued to British Royal Marine Commandos and other overseas Armed Forces to the present day. 

This knife is marked on the underside of the cross-guard with the name of "William Rodgers Sheffield England" synonymous with the manufacture of Commando Knives since World War II.

  • Blade Length: 7"
  • Overall Length: 11 5/8"
  • Blade:  Beveled, but Unsharpened, double-edged blade of drop-forged heat tempered hi-carbon steel
  • Handle:  Ringed black cast alloy handle with black crossguard and pommel
  • Sheath:  Metal tipped leather leg sheath is included

Again, this item is GUARANTEED new and authentic.

The black leather leg sheath is metal-tipped to protect both the wearer and the blade's tip, and has 2.25" belt slots (these will fit most belts up to 2" wide, allowing for the thickness of the belt itself).  We offer several variations on the Fairbairn Sykes Commando knives -- please visit our store and search "Commando" to see them all.

Please read and understand the following statements completely – these are our TERMS of purchase.  If you do not agree with these terms, please DO NOT purchase our items.  By purchasing, you are legally bound to these terms.



PLEASE pay for your item(s) promptly.  We want to get your items in your hands as quickly as possible so you can begin enjoying them!


We accept payment ONLY in US Dollars.


We accept credit card payments only via PayPal.  However, we CAN invoice you via PayPal and you can send payment via PayPal WITHOUT you having to open a PayPal account (PayPal simply acts as the credit card processor in this situation).  Please contact us with questions.


We welcome all types of PayPal payments, and will be more than happy to work with you on alternate payment methods as well -- just contact us!


We cannot ship your item until your full payment is received AND cleared.


Shipping Information: 

We will gladly combine shipping for you whenever it is possible to do so.  There is a shipping calculator available on this page.  If you feel it is not working properly, or if you would prefer we determine the shipping charge for you, please let us know your destination zip code or country, and we will relay shipping costs to you as quickly as possible.


We normally ship each weekday, Monday through Friday.  We do not and cannot ship on weekends, holidays, or while we are away from the shop either on business or vacation.  Shipping time estimates shown here are ESTIMATES only.  Please contact us BEFORE purchasing if you need immediate shipment or delivery.  We ship 99% of our items within one or two business days, but occasionally we encounter delays – we are only human.


We will ONLY ship to the address shown in the “Ship to:” area of your PayPal payment.  You may add a new Ship-To address to your PayPal account by accessing the “Profile: Add or Edit Street Address” link from your PayPal home page after you have logged in.  We will NOT ship to alternate addresses “noted” in your PayPal payment.  PayPal’s Buyer and Seller Protection programs ONLY apply if this requirement is met, and we want these protections in place for both your and our benefit.  No exceptions will be made to this rule.


We reserve the right to ship your item by an alternate shipping method.  On the rare occasions when we may use an alternate shipping method, the service we choose will be comparable in delivery time to the original method you have chosen.  For instance, we may ship your item via Priority Mail instead of UPS Ground.


Returns & Warranty Information: 

All sales are FINAL unless we have materially misrepresented an item.  However, clothing, footwear, hats, or other items for which you have a choice of size
MAY be exchanged for a different size if we stock the size you are returning.  Clothing considered “one size fits most,” “one size fits all,” or clothing we consider a custom order and non-stocked items CANNOT be returned or exchanged.


All outright returns (only on items for which returns are accepted) are subject to a $10.00 or 20% restocking charge, whichever is greater.  Alternatively, you may take store credit for the purchase price of the item being returned -- store credits must be used within 30 days.  Freight charges are never refundable. 

Some manufacturers' warranties may be affected by purchasing their merchandise on online auction sites such as eBay.  It is the buyer's sole responsibility to confirm with the manufacturer the extent to which any manufacturers’ warranty applies.  We offer NO WARRANTY of our own, express or implied, and we will not guarantee the manufacturer's warranty.


Stocking Information: 

We stock the vast majority of the products we sell.  The few that we do not are items that we drop-ship to our cus
tomers directly from our sources (all drop shipped items are noted as such in the item description, but we reserve the right to drop ship any item to our customers to maintain a timely delivery).  We sell in different marketplaces which makes it impossible for us to keep inventory counts on this site exact.  Because of this, we cannot guarantee that the quantity shown as “available” on any particular listing is actually in stock.  Please feel free to ask us before bidding if you have any questions as to the availability of a product or if you need it delivered immediately.


We normally keep what we consider a generous stock of every item we sell on-hand.  Although it is very rare, we have experienced situations before where we sell out of an item because of unusually high customer demand.  In these cases, we will make EVERY attempt humanly possible to ship your item as quickly as possible, but some delays are inevitable and unavoidable.  When we cannot provide the item to you within the period of time offered in the listing, we will contact you and ask you to decide if you are willing to wait for the item, or if you prefer, we can process a 100% refund.  We want our customers to be happy!


International Buyers, please note:

Import duties, taxes, cus
toms fees and other charges are not included in the item price or shipping rate.  These charges are the buyer’s sole responsibility.  Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying.  Duties, taxes and customs charges are normally collected by the shipping company delivering the package or when you pick the item up – please do not confuse these with additional shipping charges.


We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as ‘gifts’ or ‘samples’ as US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.  These behaviors are considered felonies punishable by years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines – please do not ask us to do this for you because we simply will not.


Knife purchasers, please note:

Please know and under
stand your local laws and regulations BEFORE bidding on our items.  By bidding, the BUYER declares that he/she:
