Remarkable that the soldier was able to accomplish this given (1) the odds he was facing, (2) the difficulty in conducting hand-to-hand combat while having the ginormous gonads this soldier doubtlessly has.

As great as this story is, the original story in the UK's Daily Express has the soldier as being (1) a 15-year veteran, (2) 27-years old. Methinks this story may not have had the best subediting and factchecking. (In fact, the Express story was from the Daily Star, which has a worse record for accuracy than even the Express.)

Let this be a reminder. If you're a ranged character with a ranged weapon, fucking fight from a range. Don't go melee mode.

(Seriously. Props to him.)

This is a story that comes from the Express, which is even worse than the Mail.
The original story was so incredible it was just laughed at. (He was 27 with 15 years experience) so not even remotely edited/fact checked. The SAS doesn't talk about operations so shit tabloids can make any shit up on a slow news day.

I'm not going to pretend to know anything about knife fighting but is it really humanly possible to decapitate someone with one swipe of a kukri?

Assuming it did happen and I was one of the ISIS guys I'd be running my ass away immediately.

It all does seem rather dubious, and try as I might I can find no reliable source for it.

Stand Up! Speak Up! Fight!

Love those kind of things on web sites....

Fascinating story if true. Those big-ass Ghurka knives can take the head off an opponent if the person wielding the knife is strong enough.
