WW2 US Army Airforce Cattaraugus Folding Survival / Fighting Machete & Original Tin Plate Blade Guard. Sn 15834 - 15834

This is an original American made folding machete / fighting knife by Cattaraugus. The U.S Army, folding survival machete was introduced in 1942 issued to U.S Air crew and originally carried folded in the seat pack attached to parachutes (see page 115 plates 579 & 580 of Stephens book ‘Fighting Knives’). Our example has its original tin plate blade cover which are often missing from these machetes. The machete measures 15 ½” extended & 11 ¼” folded. The 10” blade has some staining consistent with age & service use. The blade is marked by the American manufacturer "Cattaraugus USA". It's original riveted black slab grips are secure & undamaged. The machete's folding lock action operated by thumb lever at the cross guard works as it should. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 15834
