WW2 Japanese Heiho (Converted Dutch 1911M
Klewang) for sale
In very good condition, a scarce Japanese Heiho conversion of
a Hembrug made Dutch 1911M klewang cutlass.
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.
