Original U.S. Vietnam War M7 Bayonet with Experimental Brass Knuckle Guard and M8A1 Scabbard

Item Description

Original Item: One-of-a-kind. This experimental bayonet fighting knife began life an M7 bayonet for use with a the U.S. M16 rifle. However, a one-piece cast brass grip panel with integrated knuckle duster guard was added in theater to create a dual purpose bayonet and close combat handheld weapon. This were very popular among USGIs in Vietnam but only very few were ever issued. Furthermore, brass examples are extremely rare.

This example is offered in very good condition the M7 bayonet is marked BOC for Bauer Ordnance Co. The M8A1 scabbard is marked PWH for the Philadelphia Home for Working Blind. Later on this company marked scabbards with "TWB" in 1969-1970 to represent the Working Home's corporate name, The Working Blind, Inc.

Overall a very interesting unique U.S. fighting knife dating from the Vietnam War. Ready to display!
