World War I era Bolo Knife


This is a World War I era Bolo Knife. This knife is in good condition overall, although there are a handful of slight marks on the blade from where it was sharpened and used. The blade’s scabbard is in excellent condition, and it appears that some sort of preserving agent like cosmoline was inserted into the scabbard to keep the blade from rusting (this can be seen upon the drawing of the knife). The base of the blade’s marking of “U.S. Army, 1918” has faded away to read “U, 19.” The grip is in excellent condition as well.
