Special Forces Bolo Knife

The Counterinsurgency Support Office (CISO) procured bolo knives for Special Forces in Vietnam, who found the standard 18-inch machetes to be too long. The knife featured a wooden handle and had an 11-3/8 inch long round-tip blade. It was carried in a cotton sheath that had a riveted metal throat and a belt loop on the back.
