Thanks, Tobias & Jan. Enjoyed the read.
The AAF Folding Machete
Thanks Howard. I do a better write up on the machete in The General Knife Discussion Forum. Look for the one titled "AAF Folding Machete".
A brute of a knife, Tobias. The link you provided went nowhere, that is, it couldn't find the page for me. Just said "Page not found."
Sooper nice find!
A couple images of my latest Case purchase. This one dates from 1942. Case was one of three knife companies who made the Army Air Forces Folding Machete that was found in the B-2 and B-4 Emergency bail out kit for pilots and air crews.
The knife measures around 11.5 inches folded and about 15/5 inches when open. The blade is approximately 10 inches. This one is rock solid with a good patina. The blade is extremely tight and the liner lock functions perfectly. I haven't been this excited about a knife purchase in I don't know how long! The AAF folding machete was one of the knives on my bucket list.
I wrote more about this knife here:
8" oal, 4" blade. Full pic below. Any idea what model this is?
My recent craigslist find. Any idea what model this is? 8" oal, 4" blade.
