A good example of a British 20th Century Martindale Machete Cutlass. Of very large proportions and with a multi-fullered blade and pronounced, upturned blade that is swollen towards the end. Stamped Martindale of England to the blade forte. Grip made from lightwood and held together with a steel rivets. There is a also a leather holding strap.
Machete in excellent condition
In excellent condition throughout - probably hardly used. I believe that this type of machete is still being produced by the company and has been exported to many countries with the design remaining unhanged for a considerable period of time. Although it could be used as a naval machete, it is most likely that this machete was used on land. No scabbard - this type of machete tended to be used without a scabbard. Blade length is 18 inches (23 inches overall).
