Originally issued as a utility knife to the US Army Hospital Corps during the Phillipine Insurrection to clear vegetation and chop bamboo into tent and litter poles, the Bolo knife was also a handy fighting blade. Made in larger numbers for WWI, the Bolo knife model 1917 was issued primarily to machine gun squads to aid in clearing debris for their gun nests. It would be replaced by the M-1942 Machete early in World War II.

This replica features a slightly sharpened heavy-duty carbon blade with a false edge. A fully integrated tang is sandwiched between a textured wooden grip. It comes with a well-fit wood core sheath, covered in canvas with a brass throat piece and hanger for a belt. Weighty, thick bladed and durable - a truly heavy-duty working blade.
