Scarce early patent pending vintage Woodsman's Pal machete with hooked blade made by the Victor Tool Co and its original metal sheath. The knife retains a portion of the original Victor label on the tang, the label is worn, but the maker's name can clearly be seen. Both the blade and the knife are stamped "PDF," from use by the Pennsylvania Department of Forestry. Knife is in good condition, but shows age and wear as pictured. The stacked leather handle looks to be intact, but has electrical tape over the stack as pictured. Wear and tarnish to the blade and the leather hilt is pretty dried out. Measures about 17 inches long. Nice odd knife to add to your collection or could be a candidate for restoration. Refer to the photos for a better idea of the condition and the label. Very rare early example that is stamped "Pat. Appl. For" on the end of the blade.
