1952-1960. Good example made from heavy iron stock secured from the colonial farmers, probably from a piece of farm equipment. 13 3/4" spatulate blade of flat stock with carefully beveled/sharpened edges. The grip wrapped in stitched skin. The scabbard of classic form with dished throat and stretched bright red hide covering (one small hole as made). Interesting example of these which are always one-of-a-kind, each with a combination of scavenged or stolen iron blade, varying proportions suited to the owner for the frenzied hacking which characterized the movement and the emblematic red scabbard which served to unite them.
