We have recreated a unique and practical cutting tool, based on an original. It was issued by US Army Air Force during WWII, it was also part of the Pilot's Bail Out Kit to be used as an escape tool, for clearing a path, for making splints and stretchers, for hunting and as a weapon. The 10" long hand forged high carbon steel chopping blade is factory sharp and ready for action in the jungle or your own back yard. The heavy duty liner lock keeps the blade secure. Tapered thick black plastic rip panels are riveted in place and are ideal for positive blade control under heavy use. It does include blued steel blade guard. Although it's not based on an original, we've included a practical black canvas belt sheath for easy and secure field carry. 15 1/2" overall length open and 11 1/4" closed. Wt. 10 oz. In Stock .
