RARE, ORIGINAL, STERILE, WW2 British Commando/ SOE / Special Forces Smatchet & Leather Scabbard. ED 2491 - ED 2491 / 16949
In many respects the WW2 British Special Forces Smatchet is one of the most mysterious British issue knives of the period. Its development appears to have been around the same time as the F-S Commando dagger i.e. 1940-41. The Smatchet is listed as equipment issued to Commandos for D-day and are attributed as being used by the Special Operation Executive (SOE). While some examples bear War Dept Broad arrows no examples have been found bearing manufacturer's names (see pages 234 to 237 of The Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife & Other Commando Knives By Flook). This rare, original example of the Smatchet is clean and undamaged. It has the correct large leaf shaped blade 10 ¾” in length which is sharp and has staining consistent with age and contemporary rubber covered wood grip, most likely applied to assist grip. The rubber is complete and secure but does have surface wear to be expected ( a WW2 smatchet with the same rubber covered hilt is illustrated in item 14.15 page 235 of Flook’s book and item 14.14 on the same page shows a contemporary image of members of the SOE carrying smatchets). It has a large oval brass cross guard and correct alloy pommel holed for and fitted with cord. As is common with special forces weapons this smatchet is sterile having no manufacturer or WD marks. Its original scabbard is leather stitched over wood former and is identical to the scabbard illustrated with the smatchet at item 14.15 page 235 of Flook’s book. The rear of the scabbard has a diagonal leather belt loop. All leather is intact but has light surface scuffs to be expected. The price for this rare piece of WW2 Special Forces Equipment includes UK delivery. ED 2491
