Description

Japan NJP M1 bayonet and WW2 er M7 composition scabbard. The NJP M1 was manufactured by Nippon Products in the 1950th and issued to the USMC stationed in Okinawa. VERY rare M1 bayonet type; hard to find this nice.

Rare M1 bayonet for US Garand manufactured in Japan in the early 1950th by NIPPON PRODUCTS (NP) under a contract for the US military –  ricasso is stamped NP / US “flaming bomb” / J.  The common knowledge is that the “J type” M1s were issued to the USMC stationed in Okinawa; some of these also found their way into the Korean War. In the past, most of the “NPJ” M1s have been de-milled prior to import to the US by cutting the blade in half. This specimen is in practically unused condition with the blade intact – rare as such.

A high-quality manufacture M1 with crisp lines and a well-defined edge. The bayonet is in practically unused condition with most of the original parkerized blade finish remaining. No nicks/contact marks on the edge, spine, or the pommel; the tip is intact. Black plastic handle grips are great with no cracks or chips; all handle parts are tight. The scabbard/bayonet release mechanism is excellent and 100% functional. This M1 is about 14-5/8″ / 37 cm overall; the blade is about 10″ / 25.3 cm. Original WW2 era M7 composition scabbard is marked with US “flaming-bomb” ordinance mark on the throat. Very good condition overall, considering the age; one thin rib crack near the throat is noted for accuracy – see photos.

Overall, this rare Japan NJP M1 bayonet is in excellent condition. A desirable and highly collectible type; VERY rare this nice. Not cleaned or tampered with in any way, 100% original condition; these are the actual photos.  I have a few more American bayonets and fighting knives, as well as some scarce European WW2 and WW1 fighting knives, daggers, trench knives and bayonets available for sale – please take a look in our Militaria section.
