Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm trying to get a wooden plinth as a gift for a relative who has a presentation Fairburn Sykes dagger.

    I've tried Google and Ebay, but the only dagger stands I can find are cheesy fantasy orc-slaying dagger ones.

    Does anybody know where I might be able to get a simple, wood plinth that holds the dagger horizontally?

    Cheers,

  2. There are those that might say that presentation Fairburn Sykes daggers are cheesy orc-slaying fantasy. Not me, you understand; just some people.
     
  3. You might try the company below. They don't speicifally list plinths in their catalougue, however they do have them as part of another item (see letter openers) so may be able to help you. They are very helpful.

  4. You could probably get a local joiner to knock you one up. Just look in Yellow Pages, or try 192.com. You should be able to get one made from a decent bit of mahogany or similar for around twenty quid.

    Medals accurately mounted for display or wearing.
