Cold Steel is proud to breathe new life into a classic WWI 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.
