You are bidding on a SUPERB and VERY RARE example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe Survival Machete!  Issued with the aircraft survival kits, it was standard for pilots and crew members who served in Tropical climates.  It also comes complete with the original scabbard!


Made of wood and steel, this German Tropical Survival Machete is in EXCELLENT used condition!  Made between 1940 and 1942 by AWS Alcoso, there are some slight marks and wear due to the age, but otherwise is in AMAZING used condition!  The blade does show some oil stains, but that could be easily rectified by the winning bidder.  Also retains the original factory edge!  The manufacture logo is clearly stamped into the side.  Some marks on the spine, but nothing that detracts.  The scabbard is original to this machete and matches in condition, with some paint loss.  Would make a SUPERB addition to any collection or display!

Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

 Payment should be made within 7 business days at the end of the auction unless buyer contacts me for other arrangements. I accept all forms of payment.

 ——————- SHIPPING —————– 

My goal is to ship within 7 days from auction end. However, depending on circumstances, it may take up to an additional 1 week from receipt of confirmed payment. If you need it shipped sooner, please let me know and I will do our best to accommodate.

————— TERMS OF SALE ————– 

Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.

——————– ABOUT ME —————–

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
