This is an original M1 garand bayonet mad by UNION FORK AND HOE  ... THIS IS THE 10 INCH "NEW PRODUCTION M 1 "

BAYONET, M1: In mid-1943 a new bayonet was ordered with shorter blade of 10" length. It was identical to the WWII 1905 except for the 10" blade. A shorter M7 olive-drab metal/fiberglass scabbard came with it. A very few were dated 1943; the vast majority are undated.

The first M1 bayonets were made from M1905 bayonets that were recalled and had their blades ground down from 16 to 10 inches. Consequently, several M1 bayonets have the same features of the M1905, with similar red or black phenolic resin handles.

If you’re wondering if you’re looking at a converted M1905 or a new-production M1, look at the fuller, also known as the blood groove. If it runs nearly to the tip of the blade, it’s a converted model. If it ends about an inch before the tip, it’s a new-production M1 bayonet.he first M1 bayonets were made from M1905 bayonets that were recalled and had their blades ground down from 16 to 10 inches. Consequently, several M1 bayonets have the same features of the M1905, with similar red or black phenolic resin handles.

Both converted M1905 bayonets (designated as M1) and new-production M1 bayonets had a 10” blade with either walnut wood or black or red phenolic resin grips.

The companies that participated were American Fork and Hoe (AFH), Oneida Limited (OL), Pal Blade and Tool (PAL), Utica Cutlery (UC), and Union Fork and Hoe (UFH).

After the Second World War, other manufacturers around the world also produced M1-style bayonets, so if you find one that lacks markings on the Ricasso that align with the manufacturers listed above, it might have been made overseas.
