When the demand for the recently released special run of the Smatchet 2.0 far exceeded the supply, we wanted to make sure that all fans had an opportunity to secure a copy of the new series version, the Smatchet 2.1. Also fabricated from N690, the Smatchet 2.1 is a true classic as a "tactical machete" and a large hacking knife that represents a permanent element of the history shared by Col. Rex Applegate and B?Ÿ??ker. The handle scales are made from CNC-milled outdoor-compatible green canvas mircata and ensures secure handling. Stonewash finish blade. Shipped with premium and functional cordura sheath.

Designer Rex Applegate

Rex Applegate was born in 1914 in Oregon, where he was taught to hunt and shoot in his youngest years. After graduating from the University, he joined the US Army in 1940. Shortly before the beginning of the war he became a member of the OSS, the Office of Strategic Services of the United States Department of War. The tasks of the OSS included the operational information acquisition, disinformation, psychological warfare, partisan support, asymmetrical warfare, sabotage and counterintelligence. Col. Rex Applegate trained Allied Special Forces in close combat and founded the "School for Spies and Assassins" in today's Camp David. He coordinated secret operations throughout Europe and was employed to guard President Franklin D. Roosevelt. After the Second World War, he continued to work as a consultant and instructor, was author of several books about close quarter combat and started developing and improving combat knives.
