    AKC 1944 Gregsteel replica

    Hello all,

    My first post here...
    I have a smal collection of WW2 F-S knives and normally donít buy repro or replica knives but found this one very interesting as the originals are impossible to find, beautifull well made dagger/knife with great light feel to it.
    Is there anywhere i can find out more info about these knives besides whats already written here on the forum?





    Thanks and regards, Ruben

    From Australian & New Zealand Cutlers and Cutlery 1788-1988 by Keith M Spencer and Joan Renton-Spencer Pages 203-206.

    The GREGSTEEL name was granted to Keith Spencer in 1997. Keith got Zane D'arcy Shaw to made 50 stilettos. The one I have seen was excellent like yours. IMO and I spoke to Keith before his passing the two different AAS have a different plunge grinds. Whittingslowe have an angled ricasso whereas the Gregsteel are 180 square. Have a look at some of he posts on the AAS. Keith intimated it was to make them slightly different to a original Gregsteel.
