    Default Argentine Machete de Artillería 1909 1st Modelo

    Hello everyone,

    I got this Argentine Machete de Artillería 1909 1st Modelo made by WKC. Its not something I would usually go for and picked it up out of curiosity. Anyone got any links or info on these? I cant find much other than photos online.

    Thanks

    I'm finding basics in for sale ad's. I do like the last sentence...Elite Commando. Great selling point...

    "Argentine Machete / Bolo made in Germany by WKC in 1909, Modelo Argentino 1909 Short Sword or Machete, manufactured by Weyersberg Kirschbaum and Company of Solingen, Germany. Massive military issue jungle machete with matching numbered scabbard and a full Argentine crest on the blade. Used by the Argentine Elite Commando Force or Argentine Artillery."


    My boss called me over to his office and had one of these he picked up at our local gun show. He liked the way it felt.

    He is an avid hunter and camps out for weeks. He said it worked great for camp work!!!! Yeah he was not a collector of edged weapons

    Thanks Phil, same as you I could only find basic info on sales sites. I tried google translate on a few Spanish sites but couldn’t find much more. It does feel very well weighted in hand but I don’t think I’ll be chopping any trees down with it.
