Colonel Aaron Bank, born November 23, 1902 , was an officer of the United States Army, and the founder of the U.S. Army Special Forces, commonly called Green Berets. He is also famous for his exploits as an OSS officer during World War II, parachuting into France to coordinate and activate the French Resistance and organizing an operation intended to capture Adolf Hitler. Col. Bank is commonly known throughout the armed forces as The Father Of The Green Berets. He died on April 1, 2004 in Dana Point, California at the age of 101. The V-42 Stiletto was used extensively in many Special Forces branches as the primary knife. This historically accurate V-42 stiletto replica allows you to own a special piece of history.

signed V-42 Reviewed by Bobby on Dec 08, 2013   4 out of 5

I ordered 2 and they were very nice. Then I ordered 2 more for gifts. The second 2 were plain and unsigned and no markings on the blade. They were in the col. Bank box, but were the standard V-42.



Nice package, nice price Reviewed by Jim on Dec 05, 2013   5 out of 5

Really amazing blade and sheath for the price. The etching looks good and the blade and pommel are pretty sharp. The sheath is incredibly well built and detailed..it's unfortunate all that detail went into a 'bonded' leather product but I guess it would be cost prohibitive to use solid leather. I imagine with a good oiling the sheath should last. Overall it's an incredible value at a discounted price.

Nice Dagger Reviewed by Don on Nov 06, 2013   5 out of 5

tHIS IS A VERY NICE REPLICA DAGGER TO ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION. IT SEEMS TO BE A NEAR PERFECT REPLICA OF THE REAL THING & THE PRICE IS RIGHT. THE SHEATH IS ALSO WELL MADE. THE ENTIRE DEAL IS WELL WORTH THE MONEY.



Nice Copy Reviewed by Blanco on May 30, 2013   5 out of 5

I had been looking at this V42 copy since it came out, but hesitated ordering because I am not a big fan of the commerative text on the blade, but...when it went on sale, I decided I had waited long enough and could live with the text. I am glad I ordered, because I feel it is an unbeatable copy for the price. Let's face it -- very few people would order this knife for actual use. Most people will order it as a collectable and it certainly fills the bill for that purpose. (...not that it couldn't be put to use if need be!)
