A machete I got quite a few years back, I have found contrary indications as to it's authenticity. Some sources stating that it was an original war time production, other saying that these blades were made for an Army store post-war. Maybe someone on this site can chime in?

Not a knife or an axe, but it's sharpened and pointy steel. US Army WWII caltrop.
Nice collection !
Au Lion M1918. As so often the "Au Lion" logo stamped onto the ricasso is very faint, you can't really see it on the photo. Note that the metal sheath has been field modified. The clasps holding it on teh pistol belt were very fickle and broke of the first time the rig saw field use. This one had a piece of thick steel wire, folded into a double hook, soldered onto the sheath, so it could be fixed to the eyelets of an ammo- or pistol belt.
An M1918 made by LF&C in the US. Again the same problem with the clasps on the sheath. This one was modified by covering the original metal sheath with a field made love drab web sheath with double hook. The blade retains most of the original blacked finish.
