Original WW2 era British “I CUT MY WAY” trademark private purchase fighting dagger made by William Rodgers in Sheffield, UK. W. Rogers daggers were very popular with the British and American servicemen stationed in the UK during the war. Many British and American servicemen used W Rogers daggers in every combat theater in Europe, North Africa and in the Middle East. See a copy of the WW2 era photo with a group of British soldiers showing off their blades; the second man from the left is holding the same type of dagger (this photo is courtesy of Wikipedia and is not included with the knife).
This dagger is only slightly used – better than average condition for the type. The blade appears to have an original edge; it’s razor-sharp still; needle-like tip is intact. Ricasso is stamped WILLIAM / ROGERS / SHEFFIELD / ENGLAND. Stacked black fiber & brass spacers with wide German silver handguard and aluminum pommel; all that brass adds a nice weight to this handy fighter. The handle is tight; all parts are solid. This dagger is about 10-1/2″ / 26.7 cm overall; the blade is about 6″ / 15.2 cm. Original dark-brown leather sheath still has red W. Rogers’ “I CUT MY WAY” trademark sticker attached; all rivets are intact. Don’t miss your chance to add this original WW2 British fighting knife William Rodgers dagger to your collection!
