    Hi,
    I am after a short army machete (the web tex type in the bayonet scabbard).
    I know they are pretty unpopular so hoping someone has one.

    For swap I have a 18 inch machete I rescued from a shed. The blade is marked "made in Sheffield". It has a black plastic handle. Blade needs a clean.

    *******complete**********

    Machete "donated" to a scout leader friend. It's getting cleaned, re-handled and then it's off to the jungle. The short machete will have to wait for now.

    Hi. I have a webtex shorty machete I was going to re-handle etc
    but truth is I likely won't so it's up for swaps if you like.
    What have you got to swap? It has a camo canvas type
    bayonet sheath and both in good nick.
    Cheers ., Simon

    I have an Arktis hydration pack in US desert going spare (brand new) or some nomex US flyers gloves, brand new, green with a grey palm size 11.
    I'll have a rumage and see what else I can find. Anything you need/want in particular?

    If it's a project your after, I have an old Bowie type knife, marked 'venture' sheffield. Brass cross guard, wooden handle currently taped up. No sheath. Be a great refurb if you have the time.

    I don't think I have any materials left but I'll keep looking in my many bags and boxes and see what I can find.
