    Here's my theory anyway:


    This is a dutch M4 bayonet converted into a fighting knife.

    It went so far that i had to buy myself a dutch M4 to compare.

    Prest1, you have found the answer !

    The two little holes for pinning the bayonet crossguard to the tang give it away !
    It is a beautiful dagger, and not a type I've ever seen over here.

    I wonder if it was an issue piece, an experimental arsenal
    conversion/rework, or commercial surplus ?


    I'll have to try and find one............!
    Regards,


    Steve.
