The 1909 Bolo Knife was designed to aid US soldiers with jungle foliage that they found themselves in with incursions into Cuba and the Philippines, where natives used similar sized machetes. It was designed to be carried as a belt knife from its first production at the Springfield Armory in 1909 to its final production in 1915. Only 17,540 were produced at the Springfield Armory making originals pretty rare.
