US WWII Folding Survival Machete

windlass steelcrafts manufactured discontinued items



Sold Out
Based on an original, we’ve recreated a unique and practical cutting tool. Issued by US Army Air Force during WWII, it was part of the Pilot’s Bail Out Kit to be used as an escape, for clearing a path, for making splints and stretchers, for hunting and as a weapon too. Our original was made by Cattaraugus and is so marked. The long, hand forged high carbon steel chopping blade is factory sharp and ready for action in the jungle or your own back yard. Heavy duty liner lock keeps blade secure. Tapered thick black plastic grip panels are riveted in place and are ideal for positive blade control under heavy use. Includes blued steel blade guard. Although it’s not based on an original, we’ve included a practical black canvas belt sheath for easy and secure field carry.
