The OKC3S bayonet was desgined for the USMC and is a genuine current issue item. With the OKC3S you have an adaptive fighting knife that can also attach to the standard M-16 style bayonet lug. This current issue bayonet comes with a scabbard that has a ceramic coated aluminumn honing rod to sharpen the OKC3S to your desired level.

While I prefer the old M7 to the M9, the OKC3S trumps them all. This thing is imposing, solid, and holds up to USMC world class use and abuse.
Basically a KABAR with a locking lug. Useful even as a solid field/combat knife. You will be impressed.
The Marines did a study on how large and how long a bayonet would have to be have the stopping power of a .357 mag+p round. This is the result. We used ours to pry apart pallets and we inflicted all other kinds of abuse. When guarding POW's that Bayonet on your rifle or shotgun showed you meant business.
