Original U.S. WWII Collins & Co. Legitimus Long Jungle Machete with Leather Scabbard - dated 1942

Item Description

Original Items: Only one available. These long machetes are extremely rare on today's market. Made by Collins & Co. of Hartford, Conn, this is a LEGITIMUS model long jungle machete, later known as the No. 127. The Machete has an impressive overall length of 26 3/4 inches, with a slightly curved 21 3/4 inch Bush/Collins machete shape blade. The blade is about 2 1/4 inches wide at the thickest point. The ricasso is nicely marked:

The blade is in very good condition, thought it does show use and staining. It has been sharpened several times, so this was a machete that did not spent its life in the scabbard. The dark brown hard plastic grip is in very good condition, with the expected wear of age, and all the rivets are solidly attached. There is a small chunk missing on the right top, but it does not impair holding the blade. Some strong 

The machete comes with a field-made leather canvas scabbard, which has a belt loop attached to the back. The design is somewhat primitive, but effective, and that was what mattered in combat. Leather condition is nice, with the stitching intact. There is some cracking and splitting near the top.

An very nice WWII dated Collins Legitimus machete, ready to display!
