OSS Stiletto Fighting Knife – ‘Pancake Flipper’

Original OSS Stiletto Fighting Knife. This fighting knife is known as the ‘Pancake Flipper’ a rare knife produced between 1942 – 1943. This model was made for behind the front line members of the OSS (Office of Strategic Services). The initial production order was for only 10,000 knives, and these are very seldom encountered today. The OSS Stiletto Fighting Knife was designed off the British Fairbairn & Sykes Fighting Knife. This particular example is believed to have been produced by Landers, Frary & Clark of New Britain. The stippled brass grip retains a lot of original blackening, with normal traces of wear, one side has something yellow on it. The sharp steel blade on this piece is exceptional, and retains approximately 97% of its original bluing. The scabbard and ‘pancake flipper’ style belt loop fittings retain approximately 90% of their original olive drab paint, and show normal wear, on top of the green paint there are black stains (rubber?). The brass grommet holding the leather scabbard to the belt loop has detached, as is the case with most of these.

Scarce and very desirable OSS Stiletto Fighting Knife, in excellent condition overall.
