WW2 American Fork Hoe AFH M1 bayonet 10-inch blade M1 bayonet (not a cut-down), original M7 composition scabbard. The bayonet is excellent condition; scarce this nice and complete

Original WW2 era M1 bayonet for US Garand manufactured circa 1944 by American Fork and Hoe ­- marked AFH on ricasso. This is the 10″-blade specimen NOT a cut-down of the older 16″ blade M1905. This M1 is in rare unused condition with the “parkerized” factory blade finish intact; this type is rare as such. This specimen is very well-made with crisp lines and a well-defined edge; ricasso is sharply stamped AFH / US “flaming bomb” on one side.

The bayonet is in practically unused condition with most of the original parkerized blade finish remaining. Just a few of minor edge nicks; the muzzle ring and pommel are excellent with no contact marks. The pommel is marked with a capital letter H. Black plastic handle grips are near-mint; all handle parts are tight. The scabbard/bayonet release mechanism is excellent and 100% functional. This M1 is about 14-3/8″ / 37 cm overall; the blade is about 9-7/8″ / 25 cm. Original WW2 era M7 composition scabbard manufacture by Victory Plastics is marked with US “flaming-bomb” ordinance mark on the throat; the throat’s underside plate is sharply stamped B3/6N. The scabbard is in very good overall condition, but it looks like it was dropped a few times as the tip is cracked – see photos.

Overall, this rare WW2 American Fork Hoe AFH M1 bayonet is excellent 100% functional condition.; this type is rare this nice as most were used as intended. This WW2 American Fork Hoe AFH M1 bayonet is not cleaned or tampered with in any way, it is in 100% original “as is” condition. These are the actual photos; Garand clips are not included with the knife 😉
