Original U.S. WWII M4 Bayonet by Camillus for the M1 Carbine with M8A1 Scabbard by PWH

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a genuine excellent condition WWII U.S. Army M4 Carbine bayonet fighting knife with original M8A1 scabbard. It is nicely marked U.S. M4 / CAMILLUS on the blade side of the cross guard. The rear is marked with the U.S. Ordnance "Flaming Bomb". The bayonet is in great condition, with age and storage related wear. The blade still has most of the factory edge, with a bit of light oxidation and staining, and the tip of the blade has some wear. Blade finish is near around 80% with some overall wear and runner marks.

The Grip and pommel are all tight to the blade, and the cross guard is solid. The stacked leather grip has the proper WWII issue bakelite spacers at the top and bottom, and the pommel has the correct "starburst" peen pattern on the end of the tang. The grip does not show much wear, just a bit of drying out from decades of storage. The pommel locking mechanism is fully functional and moves easily. An excellent example of a WWII M4 bayonet.

Comes complete with an OD green scabbard marked U.S. M8A1 / PWH, offered in very good condition. This design features a a thermoplastic impregnated cotton fabric body, metal throat, and canvas frog and securing strap, with a metal tip on the bottom of the scabbard. This looks to be a post war issue scabbard, most likely from the 50s or 60s. It has The darker OD green frog, and greater space between the throat and frog. The PWH marking most likely indicates it was made at the "Pennsylvania Working Home" for the blind. WWII and the Korean war had left many servicemen with eye injuries, and at that time, there were no computers or other advanced devices for assisting the blind. To help them out, the government opened up factories where they would work, often making military support items.

The perfect accessory for any excellent WWII or Korean War issue M1 Carbine. Ready to display!
