Sometimes you just need a big knife. That's why we like Smatchets and why we're excited to bring our version to you.
Originally designed by William E. Fairbairn during WWII, the Smatchet is a historical juggernaut. We built upon Fairbairn's design by re-envisioning a blade that is slightly smaller, easier to wield, and more comfortable to use for extended periods outdoors.
Sniper Bladeworks' updated design ensures that those who are serious about bushcraft and survival have a serious knife to match.
This Smatchet has a black PVD coated spear point blade in 1095 steel and a black contoured G-10 handle.
|Blade Style:||Spear Point
|Handle Material:||Black G-10|
|Lock System:||Fixed Blade|
|Weight:||1 lb. 7.85 oz.
|Country of Origin:||Taiwan|
I’m always looking for something different and this fits the bill. Fairbairn knew what he was doing when designing this knife and sniper bladeworks brought it up to modern times. Like the handle in that it lines the blade up with your wrist. The blade is a beast to say the least. The sheath works ok but I wish it came with kydex even if it meant charging a couple extra bucks. If northwest gets these back in and you like large fixed blades, don’t hesitate. I liked it enough I got the mamu as well.
