    Hi to all knife fans. What I have here is a copy of a World War ll Jungle chopping knife made for the service men in tropical jungles. I made this in my Twentieth Year in knifemaking -1996. I have never done anything with it except put in an out of the sheath over the last 24 years ,so there is some abrasion of the Parkerizing finnish an the handle is Black Linen Micarta which will have fade spots in it , oil it an it should stay nice. the blade is 1/4 “thick an from tip to front of micarta scales is 8 3/4” with an overall length of 14 1/4”. The sheath is almost mint condition, the steel was ATS-34 . This is a Rare one for me as I made only one an in 1997 started making slip joints which i have only made around 200 so far . If you might want or need this beast for your WW 2 collection or to resell some day -this is the time to buy it. Asking $650.00 comes with Letter of Authenticity . Open to any offers. Thank you for looking. Joe
