Small Filipino Bolo Knife
I just wanted to post a couple of pictures of a cool little Filipino Bolo Knife. This blade was given to me by "Guns" Beltran in the Philippines, to pass on to my friend Matthew AKA "The wildcat missionary". "Guns" told me that it is a good throwing knife, was made in the WW2 era, and has had several handles over the years - probably due to folks throwing it.
It is about 12" over all, has a wooden sheath,a plastic string belt, with an obsolete Filipino coin as a keeper on the string belt.
Anyhoo, I passed it on to Matt and he loves it as a cherished addition to his collection of unique blades from around the world.
