The Boker V-42 Devil’s Brigade Knife was created to honor the legendary 1st Special Service Force, in which American and Canadian soldiers were combined to form a special task force for battle behind enemy lines. The numerous nocturnal operations undertaken by this force and the camouflage they used caused this unit to be nicknamed the “Black Devils” by the German Wehrmacht. This knife is a replica of the specially designed V-42 combat knife given to Devil’s Brigade members as part of their extensive combat training. It features a corrugated thumb rest for a secure grip a curved pommel and thick leather padding under the handle, and a strong double-edged blade. The steel is SK-5 High Carbon Steel, which resists abrasions while maintaining a superior edge. The motto, “The worst is yet to come!” is emblazoned on a collector’s sticker, which is a reproduction of the stickers the camp would place behind enemy lines to demoralize them. The knife also comes with the classic leather sheath and a replica of the unit’s cloth insignia, the red spearhead. The blade’s length is 7 in., and the overall length of the knife is 12 in.
