aquired a 1943 military machete from an estate of a wwii marine vet. aparently carried it through the remainder of the pacific with him, and brought home. used it for yard work for years after, but the blade snapped just under the handle. he tried fixing with duct tape, and some sort of putty that didnt work, so he just left it in his garage. id like to repair it, and make it solid again, as the thing is in overall great shape. the handle rivets would need to be removed, and blade tig welded back together, ground down, and handles reattached.. So looking for anyone who can help with this project, as it cost me literally nothing to take it.
