    Default Rare Spanish M1907 Artillery Bolo trench Knife

    Got this great Knife today:
    Man its a darn large and heavy one, made by the Spanish Toledo factory.

    Reference is made to item 185 in Hughes and Jenkins ' A Primer of Military Knives Part Two
    " This is a scarce example of the Spanish M1907 ' Machete de Artilleria'. as well as the artillery, machine gun companies carried this weapon, for close quater combat, together with a pistol. It is 17 inches long with a 12 inch blade. The distinctive bolo, Toledo made blade was the prototype upon which was based the M 1941 Spanish Mauser bayonet and the 'CETME' rifle bayonet. The hilt is of finely chequered wood secured by two large steel screw bolts and it has a scabbard retaining catch. The pommel and cross guard are steel".

    Enjoy this great knife or should i say little sword?
    Cheers Ger

    Like the archaic looking M1941 bayo, intended for clearing brush for fire positions etc and pretty useless for the job as the blade is too small for a machete-a good looking example though with the leather/steel scabbard.

    military cutlery - but it is a beautiful piece. Congrats.........!
