WW2 Edged Weapons & Knives
Great looking cut down machete that was carried in WW2 by a USMC member. It has a 12 inch blade, marked "Legitimus Collins & Co., Made in USA, No 254", has a handle similar to a V-44 and has a canvas scabbard that looks rigger made. Just has a great look going for it!! Just found this out, paratroopers sometimes carried a cut down version of the 18 to 22 inch machete. These blades would measure 14 inches or less to make them easier to carry, especially during a jump.
