Default Case XX Machete

i bought this here on the forum a few years back for the owner of our local hardware store. they were the largest Case dealer in this part of the state for a long time. ownership changed last year and they are cutting back on the knives. i asked the new owner if i could buy it and he said yes. i've always wished i'd just bought it for myself but i wanted to help a friend. i believe it is from the WWII time frame and has seen some use.

Had one from my Dad. It was issued to him during the Aleution campaign in WWII. He was a crewman on PBYs until he was reassigned to base duty. We used it when I was very young to cut our Christmas tree in the Capitan Mts. in NM. Disappeared during a move years ago. Bought one off eBay for $25 or so. Packaging arrived no machete! Found another, but no blade protector. Then the prices went high.
To me very handy size and shape. Great steel! One caution, edge is somewhat brittle, gets knicks if you hit a wire in the brush. So be careful if you use it!

I picked this one up from a friend about 10 or so years ago.
