U.S.A. WWII OSS SMATCHET.

The design of the smatchet is a viritual copy from the British smatchet, this example was produced by W.R.Case & Sons, Cutlery Company. Excellent condition American OSS smatchet, the blade has virtually all of its original parkerising with slight rubbing to the edges and to the point, it has not been reprofiled and still retains its teardrop shape. The grip is perfect, heavy aluminium pommel and unusually fitted into a British made leather over wood produced scabbard. The reverse side is fitted with its angled belt fitting, it is riveted and in place correctly. Slight scuffing to the leather covering the wood scabbard but generally good, strong and all stitched to the join on the face side of the scabbard.
