Availability: Out of stock
I received my knife last week.
This is my third Fairbairn Sykes, one being a WW2 original.
This surpasses my existing models in terms of fit and finish, robustness of construction, and materials.
If I had to identify any superior features of another model, I might say the slender handle of the WW2 model edges ahead in looks.
I’ve still to see a Faibairn Sykes approaching the quality of Shing’s. No unsightly gaps between blade and guard, or pommel. Guard fitted in line with blade.
Grip inspiring unfurling.
Commissioning was hassle free, Shing kept me informed through the process.
A pleasure, from enquiry to delivery.

I have long been on the lookout for a FS knife but everything available these days seems to be sub-standard quality.
This Shing version however, fully met all my expectations of what the quality should be. The fit and finish is faultless and the attention to detail spot on.
A very good knife and fully recommended!
