This is a nice original US Model 1917 bolo manufactured in 1918 by Plumb. The blade retains most of the original finish. There is spot of braze weld near the cross guard. The handles are in good original condition and do not appear to have been refinished or messed with in any way. The sheath is in good shape. It is dated 1918. The leather and canvas are both in great original condition with a little bit of spotting on the leather only. This is a good original WWI era bolo that is hard to find in good condition!
