Product description

Devil´s Brigade was originated in July of 1942. Under the official title 1st Special Service Force, American and Canadian soldiers were combined together to form a special task force trained for the battle behind enemy lines. The origin of many special units can be traced back to this special force. Due to numerous nocturnal operations where all faces were blackened for camouflage, the German Wehrmacht invented their nick name “Black Devils”, which bore witness of the great respect they had of their enemy although the unit was relatively small. In 1943 and 44, the 1st SSF successfully completed many operations in Italy and France and was able to influence a multitude of important situations.

 

An important piece of equipment of the Devil´s Brigade was the specially designed V-42 combat knife which was also part of the intensive close combat training. The handle of compressed leather discs ends in a pointed impact cap. A thick leather padding underneath the slightly curved pommel had to prevent injuries. The two-edged blade of the dagger was probably phosphate-coated and features a corrugated thumb rest around the area of the Ricasso. To this day the crest of the Special Forces of the US Army adorns this legendary dagger.

We not only deliver this exclusive collector’s item with its classic leather sheath but also with a replica of the cloth insignia of the unit which is the red spearhead and with a reproduction of the original German sticker with the text “The worst is yet to come!”. Additionally, it shows the 1st SSF label that used to be stuck on walls, cars, doors etc. behind enemy lines in order to demoralize the enemy. A premium collector’s ensemble not only for aficionados of the military history! Coated carbon steel blade of SK5.
