Dutch East India Company machete as captured and re- issued by WW2 Japanese Forces
A nice original Dutch East India Company machete in excellent condition complete with leather scabbard. Made and used by the Dutch East India Company around the late 1880s into the early 1900's, captured in large quantities by the Japanese Forces in WW2 and re-issued to their troops. Approximately 24 inches long with an 17 inch single edged, fullered curving blade, a dark wood handle held by 3 brass rivets and a large screw on the end. Original brown leather scabbard in excellent condition, all stitching intact, complete with brass ball-pointed chape and a brass clip around the mouth. A fine scarce item for both colonial and WW2 Japanese interest. A local bring back.
