    It works better than its commercial equivalent and it's cheap.
    Good to know.

    A Smatchet is a British WW2 era short sword, designed mostly as a close quarters weapon (most big knives are a tool first and a weapon second). my blade originally had the leaf blade shape, but I didn't really like it.

    The smatchet is basically a gladius.
