OVERVIEW

The odd looking, but very effective Smatchet was the brain child of William Fairbairn (who also co-developed the Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife) during WWII for the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) and British SAS (Special Air Service) for use on clandestine missions behind enemy lines. There were many variations in the grip and pommel, but the basic specifications never changed.

Our reproduction is based on an original piece loaned to us by a very generous collector (we matched it detail to detail). Features a high carbon steel, full tang, blued matte finished blade that’s razor sharp on one cutting side and 1/3  of the reverse edge. The close grained hardwood grips are held in place with 2 big rivets, the cast aluminum pommel (pinned in place) includes a lanyard hole. The hardwood lined and black leather covered sheath fits on belts up to 3-1/4" wide. Our replica even features the angled belt loop on the sheath, just like the original!

Key Measuements:

  • Overall: 16-3/4"
  • Blade: 11" long, 3/16" thick
  • Wt: 1 lb / 8 oz

Can be personalized with 3 Initials.

Thought the sheath could've been a little sturdier. Don't think that strip is going to last long on my belt. Is it a copy of the original one?
