    An impressive piece of 'cold steel'-much more useful and intimidating than the little M6-all handle and no blade!

    Ja, Im really very interested in such M9 bayos and I like em !

    Here in Austria its quite easy to get German and Austrian WWI and WWII bayos at flea markets, but, you never see such US M9s ...

    Im not doin "in the bay" or other, similar, sites.
    I only buy from, (or, swap with), fellow collector mates and in forums, Im active.

    The M9 is a fairly expensive bayo here (for a current issue type)-the various German bayos are very expensive-the returned soldiers from WW1 and WW2 are all gone or very old and their souvenirs have pretty much disappeared into collections-I try to get bayos for the rifles I collect but I also collect British/Australian types.

    Nice. I say the same for these as I said about your LANCAY.
    I prefer the PHROBIS for the history of the name though.
    Its fun to read about the M9. Its born of the Rambo era and the BUCKMASTER knives, which is clearly evident in the design.
    IMO Inventor Mickey Finn was brilliant and he was to knives what John Moses Browning was to firearms.
    He made a lot of 'stealth' work for the government and was happy to live discreetly.
    The wider public was how ever made aware of Finn as he was mentioned in a widely distributed/sold Tom Clancy novel.
    This made Mickey Finn very angry and he withdrew even further from the public eye.
