    One of our featured knives this week: Tactical Smatchet. Thought we’d share some pictures of it.

    History of the Smatchet:
    The Smatchet was used by British and American special forces (Special Air Service and Office of Strategic Services, respectively) during World War II. Designed as a pure combat weapon. Its balance, weight and killing power, with the point and edge, combined with the extremely simple training necessary to become efficient in its use, make it a great personal weapon.
