    USMC "Machete, Intrenching

    eBay purchase. I've seen a few of these come up before but never this cheap and they say they go for hundreds, so I watched it and sniped it for $135.

    Big heavy blade similar in thickness to the USMC Corpsman's knives from WWII.

    Made from 1912 to sometime prior to WWII, they were no longer issue items in WWII but I expect some found service from old stocks.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    Fun Fact: That Collins and Co Hartford logo was made with the same dies they used during the Civil War to stamp swords. They sat in storage for all the years in between and were used on these machetes and two others at the same time period.

    Sort of similar to the post WW2 Britishicon machete with regards the blade.
