WW2 Japanese Heiho (Converted Dutch Hembrug 1911M Klewang)

Sales enquiries

A great WW2 item. When the Japanese invaded the Dutch East Indies, they converted a number of Dutch 1911M Klewang cutlasses into machetes / jungle swords by removing most of the bowl guard / hilt; these are called Japanese Heiho.

The 43.8 cm blade is in good condition, it has lost most of its original black paint which indicates it was used (as a jungle machete). Blade firm in the hilt, the hilt good, the original Dutch leather scabbard also good. This heiho sheathes and draws well.

A good and evocative investment all in one for only £400. Please quote item reference number H12. Further / large images available upon request. Box 1014-1m (1.701)
