    Hi Guys,

    I picked up this British-Made Martindale Machete in Port Angeles, WA this summer. It is interesting because both sides are stamped C.A.R.

    Given that Port Angeles is only a ferry ride away from Victoria, BC and that the acronym begins with the letter 'C', I suspect that it may have been used by the Canadians. Unfortunately, I have no clue what C.A.R. stands for (Canadian Armoured Regiment possibly?), perhaps you guys might be able to identify it...

    Could even be Canadian Airborne Regiment. I'm not familiar with how they marked their equipment though.

    Someone will know for sure.
