Cold Steel Smatchet Machete Fixed (14 Inch 1055 Carbon Steel Blade) 97SMATS. Cold Steel is proud to breathe new life into a classic WWII 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.
It's easy to write, when all you do is tell the truth. I personally do not believe you have any competition. Your attention to detail, superb staff, extraordinary products, phenomenal service, and outstanding prices ensure that. The professionalism that you all exhibit is the benchmark all others will have to try and measure up to... Perhaps not impossible, but daunting to say the least. In having you as an "aiming point," the industry will have to improve, if it wants to even approach you, and your company... The end result will be better for everyone. Please keep-up the great work.
