Scarce WWII Issue OSS SOE Smatchet, or Heavy fighting knife. IT IS NOT A COPY, and a very good example of its type. Fairbairn during World War II, who also helped design the Sykes-Fairbairn commando dagger.
Used by British and American special forces (Special Air Service and Office of Strategic Services, respectively) during World War II. Though described in the Office of Strategic Services catalog as a cross between a machete and a bolo, it was actually based on the Royal Welch Fusiliers Trench Knife of World War I. It is guarenteed to be Genuine. Please see my photos as they form part of the description.
