Description
MRP402872: Southeast Asian Guerrilla
Museum Replicas
 
The Viet Cong were masters at "making do" and adapting. Their cutting tools were no exception. Made from any flat piece of steel, these crude implements were often perfect for the intended purpose. We've carefully reproduced an example of an actual machete brought back as a war souvenir. It's field ready to chop brush, coconuts or whatever. Made from hand forged high carbon steel with a very sharp blade with a blued finish. The close-grain hardwood handle is held in place with 2 solid brass pins. Our sheath,although not based on an original, is very practical and designed for years of tough service. It's made from top grain leather with steel rivets and a steel blade protector at the stress points. Fits belts up to 3" wide.
