  1. The leather belt/sling is 3 1/2 feet long. So I guess over the shoulder?
  2. Here is an unusual fighting knife that I have had for awhile, just found it again. It is made out of a Collins machete with a horn handle. I assume from WW2. The blade is 11 1/2 inches and you can see part of the Collins logo. The horn handle is carved into a dogs head. Comes with original sheath. It is different. Has anybody seen anything like it?
