Imperial folding survival machete with leather holster/sheath. This is the top of the line of folding machetes, only one that was issued with its own holster/sheath. Sheath is marked on front below flap-Machete with sheath-Type A-1-No.4803639. Just below the 9 t is a small cut to top layer of leather creating a small flap, unsure of what caused it. Does not go thru. Top of flap and top of belt loop have age cracks in leather and edge of sheath shows wear and age cracks. Leather is extremely soft and pliable. Does not appear to have been treated with any type of conditioner. All stitching intact and tight. Flap snap intact and works as it should. Machete blade shows wear at tip as if it were used to dig in soil with. Blade edge shows no sign of sharpening. Both sides of blade have small spots of rust bubbles under bluing. Blade guard is in great shape as is lock when guard folded into blade channel. Handles show minor wear rubs. T is no stone with sheath, I have only seen pictures of one, can't understand why none have shown up. The machetes appear often, the sheath is the piece that is rare. This would be a nice piece for display. No returns, need space for other toys. Shipping and insurance $l0.00. PayPal is only method of payment accepted.
