Yes this is very true. Both bayonets I own are not combination bayonet/utility knives however.

The AKM Type 1 bayonet:

-

The saw was dropped on the AK74 models.

Similar to the issued M9 bayonet for the M16.

Good pics 'Mitri.

The M9 is the Buck Knife that the aussie Defence Force use as the F88 Austeyr bayonet.

This is the aussie bayonet:



and the Wire Cutter assembled:



overall, an excellent knife/bayonet.

Cheers, Vince

Cleaning house some today and had to dig these out to move them. I thought about this topic and took some pics.

Here are some of the military knives/bayonets I have:



A USMC bolo, sheath dated 1945



Enfield bayonets. The top one, dated 1943, was found in a local barn and given to me. I bought the bottom one to go with a SMLE No. 1 Mk III.



The longer bayonet is in terrific condition, especially given the manufacture date.

Oh...We countin' bayonets too. O K...Here's my WWII Japanese bayonet take in the Philipine Islands by one of my uncles who was in the USMC. It is complete including the "frog".

Hey Punkin...that is one very nice "Smelly" bayonet mate....stamped with the King's Crown and made by Wilkinson Sword...truly beautiful. Always wanted one, but could not bring myself to pay the asking price of a good one.

Not familiar with the bolo...will have to do a little research to bring myself up to speed.

Is the Kukri original or is it one of the modern ones made out of old car springs by the by the Gurkhas?

Cheers, Vince

Vince, I think the kukri is an issue item, stamped 1973 but I'll have to look again. Didn't come with a sheath, cost me $9 as I recall.

That will be one of the "modern" kukris. Very versatile knife.

Vince, on one side of the kukri blade it's marked with an up arrow, "KFD" and "73". On the other side it's marked "INDIA". I assume the 73 is the year?

The arrow is the universal mark for the Defence Department...well Brit and Aussie anyway....KFD may indicate "Kukri, Field, "D" unknown and 73 would indicate the year.

Cheers, Vince
