Argentine Machete / Bolo made in Germany in 1909, Modelo Argentino 1909 Short Sword or Machete, manufactured by Weyersberg Kirschbaum and Company of Solingen, Germany. Massive and hard to find military issue jungle machete with matching numbered scabbard and a full Argentine crest on the blade. Used by the Argentine Elite Commando Force or Argentine Artillery.

Matching serial number sword and scabbard F00536, blade was still in its protective coating. We cleaned off the coating to grade the quality and make the photo. It has not been sharpen and I do not think it has ever been used because there is no cutting edge. It is ready for sharpening and you can put a fine edge on this old Solingen carbon steel blade that is 1/4" thick. Wood grips, affixed with two rivets, have no cracks and are in Excellent plus or better condition. Pommel is marked with an RA in a circle. Includes leather belt frog and paper about machete.

100 year old antique machete - 1909-2009

Overall length in scabbard is 20-5/8"; overall length out of scabbard is 20"; blade length is 14-3/4". Near mint or Excellent plus condition overall; some dark oxide on hilt pommel (most is on the back side) and cross-guard (see image), but no obvious pitting; should polish out just fine. There is a line running most of the blade where it has rubbed on the metal sheath because going in and out of the sheath. It is some type of holding stop or indent to make sure the blade stays in the sheath but is not hard to remove when you want. You can see it in the photo near the top of the back of the blade. Some surface oxidation on scabbard throat where leather belt frog had been. Several small indentions on metal scabbard and it maintains 85% to 90% of its original bluing. Very well done! This is not a bayonet.
