    WW2 CHINDIT MACHETTE UNUSUALLY WITH EXCELLENT MARKINGS DATED 1945 & 1943 DATED S Knives
    ### New Listing 24/11/15 ### WW2 CHINDIT MACHETTE WITH EXCELLENT MARKINGS DATED 1945 & 1943 DATED SHEATH. Original nice original condition .... especially considering both machette and sheath have obviously "Been There WW2 Jungle Used. These Indian made machettes are often attributed to British Far East Special Forces & Commando such as the Chindits. (Can email links to various websites on this...apparently also photos of American Merrils Mauraders carrying these ).Certainly they are lighter,shorter, and more compact than the standard WW2 British Army Issue "Bolo" Jungle Machette. Also the sheath design is unusual in that one side is completely open so the machette sheath can fit the blade exactly, meaning the machette is very quiet when carried... a useful bonus on jungle patrols. Another ( this may only be a story? as have info on this) is that the Chindits also favoured the machette because being open on one side you could make a fast draw of the machette from the sheath. Blade length about 36 cm, about 5.5 cm at its widest. Machette overall length about 49 cm. Unusually the machette is nicely marked with manufacturer and 45 for 1945 stamped on the blade. Numbers stamped on both sides of the wood grips. Machette leather sheath has manufacturers stamp and date 1943 You must be at least 18 years of age to buy this item.
