Heres one of my M1 garands...UFH 1943 with scabbard.....Modified from 16" blade to 10" blade. Notice how the blood groove runs to the tip of the blade identifying it as what used to be a 16" Lets see someones 16" un-modded garand blade!!!!

Topic: Here is another...alot older


This is a U.S. Springfield .58 caliber model 1861 bayonet from the American Civil War. I was lucky to get this one, it has been treated with tongue oil for preservation....You can still barely make out the U.S. stamp on the shoulder of the blade...which is nearly 20" long.....ouch!!

Thanks Kamikazi....They are pretty rare but still able to find them . I actually found this with a metal detector near my house. It has been cleaned and treated in tung oil and preserved by a professional machinist.

I had a huge collection of bayonets which I eventually sold. In it was a new condition German bayonet called an Engineer's bayonet with a sawtooth along the back of the blade. I had heard that the Germans were warned by the allies that anyone caught with one on their rifle would be executed on the spot because it made such terrible wounds and was against the Geneva Convention.

There must have been something to it because I also had an exact same bayonet with the saw ground off. Anyone know anything about this.

The bayonet for an Enfield Rifle WW1 was more like a sword
