Received this Machete in return for a knife sharpening favor I did. Not a bad exchange at all. Should be fun to try and get this on the stones.

From the search I did seems like a run of the mill machete but the model 702 seems to of been a military machete.

If anyone knows more would love to hear from you.

Thanks

The sheath is really cool also.
