U.S.M4 Bayonet by Maker UTICA and U.S.M8A1 Scabbard. 20222. - 20222
The M4 bayonet, like the M3 fighting knife that preceded it, was designed for rapid production using a minimum of strategic metals and machine processes; it used a relatively narrow 6.75-inch bayonet-style spear-point blade with a sharpened 3.5-inch secondary edge. The blade was made of carbon steel, and was either blued or parkerised. Production of the grooved wooden handle was later simplified by forming the grip of stacked leather washers that were shaped by turning on a lathe, then polished and lacquered. The steel crossguard has a bayonet muzzle ring and the bayonet fastener is on the pommel. Later models used a black moulded plastic handle. This is an original M4 bayonet for the M1 Carbine, complete with scabbard and webbing frog. The bayonet has a blackened steel blade which measures 6 ¾ " long. The blade crossguard which has a muzzle ring is marked ‘U.S.M4 UTICA (Utica Cutlery Co) and smoking grenade’ and is in very good condition. The steel pommel incorporates a bayonet release mechanism which operates smoothly. The scabbard is a plastic patterned U.S.M8A1 scabbard has an integral green webbing frog made by R.W.H. This is a very nice complete and original bayonet, scabbard and frog. (See White & Watts Pages 220 & 227). The price includes UK delivery. 20222.

U.S. Late WWII ‘M3’ Fighting Knife and Scabbard. 20160. - 20160
The M3 trench knife or M3 fighting knife was an American military combat knife first issued in March 1943. The M3 was originally designated for issue to soldiers not otherwise equipped with a bayonet. However, it was particularly designed for use by forces in need of a close combat knife, such as Airborne Units and Army Rangers, so these units received priority for the M3 at the start of production. As more M3 knives became available in 1943 and 1944, the knife was issued to other soldiers such as Army Air Corps crewmen and soldiers not otherwise equipped with a bayonet, including soldiers issued the M1 carbine or a submachine gun such as the M3 ‘Grease gun’. This is a nice cross guard marked ‘M3’ knife by ‘Imperial’. It has a virtually un-marked leather washer grip with plastic spacers top and bottom, denoting a late war issue. The clean 17 cm blade retains most of its parkerised finish, and the pommel has the flaming grenade stamped to the top. The scabbard is the early U.S. ‘M8’ by ‘B.M.Co’ (Beckwith manufacturing). A very nice late war combination in very good condition. The price includes UK delivery. 20160.
