Issued to the USMC, this was a unique take on the bolo machete. This design saw use from WWI to WWII and some even surfaced in Vietnam. We purchased an original at auction from WWII and meticulously copied every detail. Perfect for the re enactor and collector and still functions like a champ in the outdoors. Scabbard is steel and brass with canvas web covering and leather at throat and tip. Factory sharp, is has a high carbon steel blade with a full profile tang for added strength. Wooden scales secured by brass rivets. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
