For everyone's attention, the OKC-3S bayonet the Marines have adopted blows both the M7 and M9 bayonets out of the water as both a bayonet, field knife, and fighting knife. While the M7 is a better thruster, it is horrible for any cutting task. The M9 is a glorified wire cutter and fails miserably at almost everything else except for being heavy, having poor ergonomics, and little real use.

Putting a bayonet lug and muzzle ring on a knife tends to foul up the ergonomics a good bit - this bayonet doesn't work well in Sabre or Reverse grip, but is the best pointed thingy put on the end of a weapon since the demise of the 18" bayonet used in WW1 and early WW2 - and much more useful as a field knife if held in the conventional forward grip (aka "hammer grip"). If you shop around you can find it for about $100 + shipping. Unlike the M9 and the M7, it can actually cut and I greatly prefer it over the "Ka-Bar."

I liked this quote so much I just had to post it...

Quote:
One ANZAC morning I heard an old digger (wwII vet) comment on the length of today's bayonets;
"Bah, useless. I used to fit three Germans on mine. Had to pull the trigger to get them off"

Thanks John!
