My nephew sent me this pic, wanted to know if it is of the VietNam era.

I couldn't ID the thing, . . . Navy didn't need knives for much more than cuttin' up food.

I'd appreciate any feedback you have, positive or negative.

May God bless,
Dwight

Can you tell me what the label says?
My nephew added this:

The manufacturer is Toreador out of Columbia. I've googled and haven't had any luck on it. My mom says it came from WW2 but it just doesn't look that old plus the nylon looking sheath made me think of the 60's and 70's era issue...not sure what the handle is made out of but it looked plastic to me. Thanks for having others look.

Thanks, m1a, . . . may God bless,
Dwight

I have one just like this that is a few years old, bought in Costa Rica, made in El Salvador. Exact same design. Down in Central and South America, these are very common. They are the multi-purpose tool and everyone has at least one. Just your standard machette.
