Had a request for pointy-pictures from the previous-post comments.

Left to right, the first is an Aerial Cutlery Co. M4 for the M1 Carbine. Aerial was the smallest maker with only an estimated 91,898 made (Imperial made over 900,000). The second is your typical beater M1 made by Utica Cutlery Co. for the M1 Garand – one of the larger manufacturers with an estimated 750,000 made, and the last is a Springfield-Krag 1900-dated bayonet with a second type scabbard.
For all your US Military knife and bayonet questions, these guys really have the answers!
