In very good condition, a scarce Japanese Heiho conversion of a Hembrug made Dutch 1911M klewang cutlass. Now with 20% discount.
A great WW2 item. When the Japanese invaded the Dutch East Indies, they converted a number of Dutch 1911M Klewang cutlasses into machetes / jungle swords by removing most of the bowl guard / hilt; these are called Japanese Heiho.
The 43.8 cm blade is in good condition, it has lost most of its original black paint which indicates it was used (as a jungle machete). Blade firm in the hilt, the hilt good, the original Dutch leather scabbard also good. This heiho sheathes and draws well.
A good and evocative investment all in one for only (was) £350, now £280 . Please quote item reference number H12. Further / large images available upon request. Box 1014-1m (1.701)
