Well Lee that one does look like the one pic I saw that had two knives pictured, one was the V-42 and the other resembled yours I think.
That V-42 is cool for sure!

The V-42 will be cool, but pricey.

BREAKING: W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company Unveils Its WWII Knife Replica, the V-42 Stiletto, at SHOT Show

The new V-42 Stiletto, a WWII knife replica, from W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company was unveiled today at SHOT show in Las Vegas.

The V-42 Stiletto, originally built by Case in 1942, was initially issued to “The Devil’s Brigade,” the First Special Service Force led by U.S. Army Colonel Robert T. Fredrick, in WWII. The V-42 Stiletto has become a symbol of WWII soldiers, found on the Regimental Crests, unit shoulder patches and other Distinctive Insignias of the U.S. and Canadian Army Special Forces.

After 70 years, W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company unveiled their “faithfully true” replica of the V-42 Stiletto today at the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor (SHOT) trade show in Las Vegas. This project was first requested by The Special Forces Association Montana Chapter 28, as well as the vintage knife community as a whole. The knife closely resembles the original museum piece with a double-concave blade and its signature line along the length of the blade.

Case is notorious for its attention to detail, and the new reproduction V-42 Stiletto will have the original thumb-print on the knife’s ricasso, which historically helped the soldier direct the blade with a better grip. It will have the original soft leather handle, will be 12 and a half inches long and weigh seven ounces. The knife, like the original, will come with a leather sheath. 

The knife was revealed today at the 2015 SHOT Show in Las Vegas and will be available to the public for purchase later this spring, costing an MSRP price of $549.00. In the company’s official press release, John Sullivan, Director of Marketing for W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company said:

We’re extremely proud and honored to present a reproduction knife that is symbolic of our military elite and the American freedom they fought, and fight everyday, to protect. Case knives and the American military share a long and distinguished history dating as far back as World War I, so we’ve taken great measure to ensure that the V-42 reproduction model meets the highest standards and is deemed authentic by the same brave Forcemen who carried the original into battle so many years ago.

W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company has been a true American manufacturer of knives since 1889. Case is a nationally-recognized brand of traditional folding pocketknives, fixed-blade sporting knives and collectables. The Case Collectors Club has 19,000 active members. Visit W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company’s website for more information.

If you happen to be at SHOT Show on Wednesday, January 21, swing by booth 13905 where original members of the First Special Service Force who served in WWII will be signing autographs and sharing their experiences.
