A bayonet of 8 inches in length, made by Ontario Knife Company, is the bayonet that is issued to members of the United States Marine Corps. It has a blade made of 1095 carbon steel that has been treated with a non-reflective black zinc-phosphate finish. Hand fatigue is reduced by the use of the unique Dynaflex handle, which provides a superior grip in all conditions. The USMC Bayonet is housed in a brown Hytrel polymer scabbard with a snap closure, which is designed to work perfectly with web gear and other web-based equipment. The scabbard is equipped with an integrated ceramic-coated sharpening rod, which is conveniently located on the back for quick touch-ups in action.
It complies with US Military Specifications.
Ontario’s logo was designed and manufactured in the United States of America.
