This is a genuine Military Phrobis III M9 Bayonet with scabbard in unissued condition with paperwork. 4 line with wide font USA and oval "O" in the Phrobis name. Also, has the "short loop" webbing on the backstrap. Both this variation and the "short loop" are often seen together, and is not the most common. Complete with all original parts as it came from the military. Included is the original paperwork and "unserviceable" tag, which does not mean there is anything wrong with the knife. Rather, it was probably just the way the item was surplussed. It is unusual to have this much paperwork. The bayonet came from the C Battery, 1st Battalion, 17th Field Artillery Regiment in Fort Sill, OK. Excellent condition except for a very slight amount of scuffs and light scratches from storage/handling. Blade has factory edge with the original "bur" along one side of the edge that happens when the knife is sharpened at the factory, but not honed. Virtually no scabbard wear to the side of the blade. Has some "swirl" marks on the side of the blade caused from the factory testing/adjusting of the wire cutter plate screw. Even the ones new in the package will have this mark. False edge has no wire cut gouges. The top strap is tight. All of the finishes on this bayonet are original and nothing has been retouched or repainted. Made in USA.
