These weapons are often known as Cuban machetes, and come with a variety of blades and hilts. They are particularly famous for having been used during the Cuban war of independance, but were issued to various officers serving in the Americas.
This machete is in excellent shape, with minimal patina, and is very solid. It features the popular clip point and a very detailed nickel plated hilt. Made by Collins and Co. in Hartford, a reknowed maker of axes from Connecticut.
