    I bought this from a local auction and wondered if anyone knew what it was and what it might be worth? The blade has J.J.B. 1944 with an arrow pointed up ...

    Thank you

    That is a British Bolo Machete or Smachete. The second picture is that of the 'Broad Arrow' stamp used by the British Ordnance Dept/ Branch.

    Thanks for the ID, Brad.

    Bamanut, just a note that we are not a valuation service. While we have many members who can help you identify things you are unsure of, we cannot presume to tell you their value. My best advice is to do a lot of research before you purchase anything. Basically, an item is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it.

    I thought for sure it was a USMC Corpsman Bolo, I got so excited I glossed over the part where he was asking for a valuation and for that I apologize.
