    indeed it is interesting. i am sure i have seen such a knife like this before as a kid is this type of rubberised green sheath.. looks just like a chinese chopper you buy in the a market there.. but factory made.. i wonder if this was made in vietnam.. or the u.s. or another country

    This blade is quite similar to another I used to see in one of the outdoor products/military/tactica l (and wannabe) catalogs -- just wish I could remember which one. But that was a long time ago in a life that's now far, far away...

    IIRC, they called it an "African Bush Knife" and made much of the idea that the hollow handle was of great assistance in converting it to a spear.

    Of course, the "African Bush Knife" had a drop-point configuration instead of the squared-off configuration seen in the subject of this thread.

    I'd not be wanting to hold this thing in my bare hand when whacking into anything substantial. There's a good reason why hammers have shock-absorbing handles, ya know...

    Hoping this helps a bit.

    i think the knife you are thinking of is the cold steel bushman . othign to do with africa other than being made in south africa by lasher tools.
    no thins knife is from the vietnam war and is based on the south east asian choppers found in thailand, south china and Vietnam-Laos-Cambodia region
    what i wounder was who made this , was it vietnamese made or japan or in the u.s or some other place..
