Aircraft Escape Hatchet

$225.00


What a fantastic example of this kind of hatchet. These are hard to find and this one was probably manufactured during WW2. This type of hatchets were used by the crew of downed aircraft to cut their way out of the wreckage. This one measures 39cm from top to bottom and just over 19cm across the head. It is also marked with what I assume is the aircraft number.
