Gosciniak & Sandow Featured in Blade Magazine June 2023 issue
GOSCINIAK STEALTH CUSTOM DAGGER & SANDOW FAIRBAIRN-SYKES DAGGER were just featured in the June issue of Blade Magazine. The article titled, “Daggers…You Get the Point” was written by Les Robertson of Robertson’s Custom Cutlery and appears on pages 78-87. The article talks about the history of the dagger and some of the lessons he has learned while using a dagger in the field: 1) Don’t believe the hype and 2) Only use custom made daggers with a full tang.
The texture of the Black Micarta on the handle of the Piotr Gosciniak Stealth Dagger gives the user additional grip, particularly in a wet environment. The fuller reduces the weight of the Blade while at the same time improving its strength. The thumb cut-out provides the user with extra stability while using the knife.
Blade Length: 6.3″ Overall Length: 11.5″ Blade Steel: 80CrV2 Blade Finish: Black Cerakote Handle Material: Laser-cut textured Black G-10 Sheath: Custom-made Kydex sheath by the maker $425.00
Piotr Gosciniak has been making custom knives in his home country of Poland since 2017. Having a keen interest in the military, Petr decided to focus his talent on making tactical knives. He occasionally uses carbon steel such as 80CrV2; most of his knives are built using high-quality stainless steel such as Elmax or Sleipner. He also offers Cerakote coating for his knives. Piotr prefers synthetic handle materials, Micarta, G-10, or Carbon Fiber.
As a former Infantry Officer, I appreciate Piotr’s knives’ clean, crisp lines. His designs are purpose-driven; these are tools meant to be used. The fullers, textured handle material, and thumb serrations add to the knife’s capability.
True to the original Fairbairn-Sykes, this Brent Sandow Dagger is quick, fast and meant for serious work. The scalloped guard for the user’s thumb allows for better control. Sandow lives in New Zealand.
