    Yes, an original M4 knife bayonet.

    It is not blood on the blade. Clean the blade with cloth and some light gun oil, but nothing abrasive.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Sadly no steve...my friend bought it in a weird eclectic shop here in San Josť, Costa Rica so im thinking thats just asking too much lol, as you can imagine there are not many wwII collectors and they tend to be discreet...

    Try searching Ebay for these and check ending prices - though most all M4's
    you encounter will include a sheath. Empty scabbards are listed sometimes,
    but they can go for a lot because they were used with M3's as well.........

    Yes they were. These replaced the M3 fighting/utility knife in 1944.
