    Here is a thread dedicated to the military bayonet...

    ========================================

    Called "the greatest battle implement ever devised" by General George S. Patton...the M1 Garand had several different designs of bayonet throught it's service history...to include the M1905 and M1942, both with 16-inch (406 mm) blades; the Model 1905E1 with shortened 10-inch (254 mm) blade; the M1 with 10-inch (254 mm) blade; and the M5 bayonet with 6.75-inch (152 mm) blade.

    This is my M1942 bayonet that fits my M1 Garand manufactured by the Springfield Armory in November of 1944...

    This bayonet fits my Yugoslavian AKMs...it is a Type II M1959 6H3...which forms a wire-cutting device when coupled with its scabbard. The polymer grip and upper part of the scabbard provide insulation from the metal blade and bottom part of the scabbard to safely cut electrified wire.
