Machete, Folding, Emergency kit, CASE XX, USAAF
Nice genuine WWII US Army Air Force folding machete with a 11" blabe. Manufactured by Case XX, this machete was issued in emergency kit type B-2 and B-4. Delivered with its blade protective cover.
In 1942, the USAAF adopted a folding Machete to use in the B-2 and B-4 kits. This machete was designed to replace the Model 18 Collins machete, which took too much space in the emergency kits.
