    Martindale Birmingham W702 Machete



    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

    Thanks Steeley, I found the website also. Good stuff.

    Brainsausage I will try to get more pics up. Hard blade to shoot but I will try.

    The sheath is really cool also.
