There are armchair commandos all over YouTube. And then there is Trooper Stan W. Scott, who was an actual commando. British No. 3 Commando veteran from World War Two in fact.
I have long been a fan of the British Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this venerable blade, I refer you here. For those who want an even more in-depth examination of the style, click here.
A simple glance at the knife’s wicked sharp point and thin profile, it is clear that this is a thrusting weapon. However, to hear its use described in detail by a man who carried one in action is powerful stuff and adds a level of realism that is chilling. I am glad this man was on our side.
