Scarce British Indian Army machete, based on the Burmese Kachin Dha, known officially as the DAH MK III.

Blade maker marked "GNF" and dated 1945. Inspection stamps to either side of the wooden grips, along with "November GNF 44" which I suspect is the pattern designation. I've not encountered this marking before. 

Housed in a standard machete scabbard, maker marked and dated 1944.

Blade length 13.25 inches. 18.5 inches overall.

A good clean example of this distinctive sidearm.

Strictly over 18's only. Photo ID will be required before this item can be dispatched.
