Dagger Herring is one of the most loved military knives by the fans. Its original name is Fairbairn-Sykes or Commando Dagger and it was presented in the combat set of the British Commandos.

A dagger that enters the history of our country in the Second World War, thanks to the young soldiers exploits of the 1st Reconnaissance Squadron “Folgore”, which were equipped with this weapon during Operation Herring.

A dagger that has behind it an heroic piece of history about which little is said, despite the devotion to the cause and the courage of these young boys have written an important page of Italian history.

Extrema Ratio wanted to pay homage to this dagger keeping the original design using the most modern production techniques.

The unique handmade finish of the handle imitates the ageing of the brass and it gives the dagger a dated look, similar to the original one.

The dagger was developed in collaboration with 185th RRAO and adopted as a ceremonial commemorative dagger for the 20 years since the regiment’s constitution and 75 years since the Herring mission.

The knife is available in two versions:
– Herring double edge
– Herring NE without the edge, realized to consent free selling ad detention according the current Italian law.

Both versions are equipped with a polymer case with historical frieze of the Squadrone F, leather / kydex sheath with brass tip and two commemorative scrolls.
