    ID help please Bolo blade sidearm.

    Hi All, Can anyone here offer any information on this?
    21 inches (51 cm) overall, with 16 inch (40 cm) single fullered blade. No markings other than, 'F I' stamped on the frog button of the steel mounted leather scabbard.
    It looks similar to the M1909 Argentine Bolo, but on close examination has differences, the most obvious being the crossguard and pommel.
    I'll be grateful for any help.

    it seems that some of my photo's are too large, I'll add some more later.

    Mel.

    Hilt. The crossguard is flat with two 'half ball' projections unlike the Argentine 'S' shape.

    Mel: Sometimes they are marked "EUB" in various places, most are blank, and there are some made in Solingen. Not as common as the Argentine version...
