A note from Ontario Knife about their Bayonets: "Ontario Knife Company is one of the few remaining American bayonet manufacturers and the sole source of the combat deployed OKC3S bayonet. Complementing our legacy of military issued bayonets, which include the M9 and the storied M7, Ontario Knife's tactical blades include the Air Warrior Program's ASEK survival knife, the Freedom Fighter, OKC's Kukri, and the Navy-issued Mark III."
Reminds me of my service issue bayonet. It's exactly the same in every aspect. It took awhile but I got it in over a month. Also the blade came dull. Maybe ontario knife is churning these out too fast. I recommend it!
Durable and as tough as the USMC's that carry them
This bayonet is a must have if you have a bayonet lug on your primary weapon! It will effectively cause vital damage to anywhere you apply it, maiming and killing your enemy with true marine proficiency allowing you to stack up more kills, faster than your teammates who decided to forego such an awesome piece of equipment. Ooh rah! Semper Fi!
I'd give this product 5 stars, but it came damaged due to poor packaging. The sheath and knife are allowed to rub against each other and slide around the box, scratching up the sheath. This was supposed to be a display piece. To make matters worse they never responded to my complaint email. It wouldn't cost anything to wrap the sheath in some foam or even packing paper...something.
The listing did not show the item back ordered when I ordered in December. I received the item in April. When I received the blade the finish looked chalky and poor, I was initially upset, I oiled the blade and the finish normalized. The knife arrived with very noticeable burring along the serrations and the fine edge. The grind was quite uneven along the curve of the blade, and the blade was not very sharp. Quick work on some diamond stones brought the sharpness back and I deburred the serrations. I am less than pleased with the initial unboxing, but after showing some love to it it has shaped up well. I hope the ones they make for our Marines are finished better than mine.
It will take time for the product to be delivered, but once it got here I fell in love with it. I am not a knife expert or anything so i cant give an in dept review. But as a person who wanted a really good bayonet, I am very happy with this product.
Probably the best blade you can have in terms of its materials, durability, and appropriate geometry for stabbing and slicing.
It's a good-looking well-made bayonet but it does not come very sharp probably worse than most machetes come but I put a good Edge on it but as soon as I got it I haven't been able to get it razor sharp like I like it though. That's the only reason I gave it four out of five stars...
Will recommend to others.
