Azan World War II Knife Bayonet - thick carbon steel and prepared for cutting, stabbing, and survival. If you like WWII stuff, this bayonet reflects all of the heritage you can cherish. It is replicated from the original WWII Garand M1 assault rifle bayonet. The 22 inch carbon steel blade is finished black. The bayonet blade features a blood groove, like one that was used on the battlefield. Since the carbon steel blade is treated with an oxide coating it will resist rust and deterioration. The guard on this knife has been cast from stainless steel and antiqued to match the blade. The shape of the guard is actually symbolic for the bayonet, making it a classic and recognizable by a true WWII collector. The black ABS handle is pinned to the blade with a durable rivet. It has a 5mm thick blade that is very strong and ready for use. This bayonet will ship with an authentically styled sheath that is also uniquely made to match this bayonet. "U. S. " is engraved on the sheath.
