I am having a hard time identifying one of my old machetes. I would like to find out who made it or what country it is from so I can look for another sheath for it. It is a straight back 18" blade with a wooden three rivet handle. It has letters stamped in the blade but it's worn and I can only make out SAML although there's more stamped below
it. The canvas sheath is in poor condition. It is of the folded canvas design riveted together. It has a brass piece where the blade enters and brass rivets throughout. It has the type of hanger to attach it to a US military web belt.

Looks like a US sheath, but those were available as surplus for a long time.
Can't make out the marking and wasn't able to find a partial to serve as a lead. Overall it reminds me of some of the British machetes, but that could be misleading to bet on that.

If simply looking for one that fits, there are a lot of various sheaths on the market to serve as a cover.

Soak it and see if the letters following SAML look like KITCHIN.
