Nice solid klewang. Spine of blade is 3/8" thick, tapering down to 1/8" near the point. Iron collar bolster, hardwood handle decorated with incised lines and seven brass rivets. Definetly a functional weapon/tool machete. Circa mid to late 1800's, may be older. Sheath is newly made in the traditional style.
