Overall length is 16". Blade is 9" long and about 6" across at the widest point. Knife is stamped "A. FIELDS & CO" with "ENGLAND" below that. There is some sort of a bolt at the end of the handle. I am curious as to what this oddly shaped knife was used for and what it is called.

    When I was young we used machete's this shape to cut large roots when clearing stumps.

    I have one but it's a reproduction. It was sold as a "Bush Machete". The curved blade for whacking through the lighter stuff and the straight blade on the back for chopping through the thicker stuff. Nice piece. Works well if you have the need for this kind of a tool.

    Hi pstrisow, it is an old Billhook, used in farming and hedging
