Original U.S. WWII Imperial M4 Bayonet for M1 Carbine with Post War M8A1 Scabbard by PWH
Original Item: Only One Available. Genuine WWII U.S. Army M4 Carbine bayonet fighting knife with original Post-War contract M8A1 scabbard. Nicely marked U.S. M4 / IMPERIAL on underside of hand guard for the Imperial Knife Co., next to the U.S. Ordnance "Flaming Bomb". The blade is in very good condition, though it was arsenal re-ground and then the bayonet was parkerized. No rust or other issues we can see, and the lock still works correctly. The finish on the blade shows very minor in and out wear. Grip, guard and pommel are all tight to the blade, with just a bit of wiggle.
The bayonet still has the original WWII issue leather washer grip, many which were replaced when these bayonets were put back into service during the post-war period. It still has the two plastic spacers at the pommel and guard end of the grip.
It comes in a post war issue OD green fiber scabbard marked U.S. M8A1 / PWH, also in offered in very good condition. There is some wear to the scabbard, but it is still solid. According to research, maker PWH was actually the Pennsylvania Working Home for the Blind. There were many Korean and Vietnam war era contracts that involved companies that employed the blind, which in the pre-computer era did not have many choices for employment.
