WWI Model 1917 Bolo Knife by Plumb with Web Sheath
The Model 1917 Bolo Knife, manufactured by the Plumb Company of Philadelphia and dated 1918 on the ricasso. This Model 1917 Bolo is within the original canvas web scabbard. The wood grip plates show age and carrying wear, with typical indentations in the wood. The blade shows relatively minimal “in and out” wear to the original dark finish. The blade is free of chips, nicks, or active rust. The khaki colored web and leather scabbard shows age and has expected spots, but it is complete and intact. The bolo is in overall very good to excellent condition.
