    Hi Andrew , sorry for the late reply , i have not seen the commando knife with the "bolo" shaped blade before and have struggled to get any info on it , so i assume it is quite a scarce item . You probably already know the blades are marked with the " FN "and " FNT" the National Arsenal mark of Fabrica Nacional , Toledo . The "bolo" blade was the distinctive shape of the 1941 bayonet and your examples look (from the photos ) to have the earlier wood chequered grips , and these were occasionally replaced by plastic on later refurbished examples . Sorry there`s not much on your knife but if i get more on it i will let you know ! I really like these two examples and thanks for showing them

    Hi Alan,
    thanks for taking a look. i almost gave up on hearing anything on this thread. both do have wood grips. the small knife is interesting. i seem to recall looking it up about 10 years ago, but now i cant find any information on it.

    Very interesting stuff there Andrew. I'm like you, I have missplaced far more information on my stuff then what I have on hand. I need to be a better record keeper.

    hi jay,
    your not kidding about forgetting some things. this getting old is for the birds. all i can remember on the knife was that it was a commando knife. now trying to look it up i find nothing. i know this one is not home made lol.
