Offered is an Al Mar Combat Smatchet. The Smatchet is a fighting knife based on the "cled" a Celtic short sword. The modern version was developed by Colonel Rex Applegate of the United States OSS and Captain William Ewart Fairbairn of the British Royal Marines during WWII.

This allows each of the edges to be sharpened individually for different usage, or as a back-up edge if one is dulled.
