The traditional Corvo is a bladed weapon that is popularly regarded as the national knife of Chile. As such, it ranks alongside the Navaja of Spain, the Kukri of Nepal, and the America Bowie as a blade that was pivotal in the wars-and ultimately, the history-of its nation. The Corvo knife was so uniformly carried by Chileans that it saw wide use in Chile's 19th century War of Tndependence from Bolivia. So significant was the Corvo's prevalence in the war that the knife was officially adopted by the Chilean military. Today, the Special Commandos adhere to a uniquely-developed curriculum for the combative use of the Corvo, which includes its proper deployment in confronting enemy opponents, whether unarmed, or wielding knives, entrenching tools, or bayonets. In this book two edged weapons Masters, Fernan Vargas and James Loriega take you on a journey to explore the history, culture and use of the Corvo.
