the war. the machete/messer was sold from germany to spanish speaking american countries for their militaries. the person i bought it from in the states i gather he'd got it from someone with cuban connections and had assumed it may have been around for the period of the spanam war. it is shown here as an example of the military's tools/secondary weapons of the spanish in the period of the war.
