Cold Steel is proud to breathe life into a classic world War II knife called the smatchet. Famed for its countless exploits in the trenches, the rubble-strewn streets and the thick Jungle, it carved out a reputation for ferocious effectiveness that still echoes today. A knife that gained much of its notoriety in the hellish melee of trench warfare, the smatchet was all about function. Its flat, heavy blade struck fear into the enemy and provided a distinct psychological edge to the wielder. Just holding a smatchet instilled confidence and a grim determination for getting the job done. Its very name became a byword for Guts, glory and bravery. Our modern interpretation of this true military classic features the same instantly recognizable broad spear point and false edge with the addition of a strong, steel reinforced guard and rugged weather-proof handle with a generous lanyard hole in its contoured, comfortable and virtually unbreakable polypropylene handle. A formidable tool that can only be described as part machete, part short sword, our smatchet is fully sharpened and coated with a rust resistant matte finish that is baked onto the 1055 carbon steel blade for extra durability. Affordable, strong and reliable, the smatchet is made to survive. When you feel the comforting heft of the smatchet hanging from your belt or pack in its cor-ex sheath you will know the confidence that comes from having a knife that can handle the very worst that the world has to throw at you.
