Default WWII Edged Tools

I have a Woodsman’s Pal tool for sale. I bought this and the Bolo below from an old Gent that lived down the road. He was in the National Guard and was activated for WWII. I believe that he was sent to Burma or some other hellhole like that. I wished that the 35 years that has passed since then hadn’t dimmed my recollections but it has. He brought both of these tools back with him and used them as if he bought them from Sear/Roebuck ( there was no Walmart back then) Anyway this old Woodsman is still pretty neat. It has an old field repair to the handle and has it’s original canvas case. It shows signs of used but considering it is 70 years old it’s not too bad at all. Would like $80.00 shipped for it.

This old CASE XX bolo knife was another thing I acquired from him. He was using both of these tools to clear some brush behind his old farm house. There was a beat up leather scabbard for it but in the past 30 odd years it just fell apart. This Bolo measures 15 inches OAL with a 10 inch blade. Asking $80.00 for it.
