This a World War II vintage smatchet with sheath. As you can see it it is excellent condition. Purchased from Snyders Treasures. http://www.snyderstreasures.com/ Snyders Treasures got it from the estate of British Colonel Donald Hamilton-Hill. I have a letter of provenance from Snyders Treasures. Snyders Treasures has the Colonel's papers. Handle is wrapped with cord, it came that way from the estate.
