M-1909 Bolo Bayonet is a variant of the M-1909 Bolo Knife and
has been seen in three forms, all
of which are distinguished by differences in the hilt. It is
extremely scarce and many attempts have been made to create
fakes of this rare bolo bayonet, usually by welding M-1892 Bayonets
to M-1909 Bolo Knives.
Only 50 of these Bolo Bayonets were produced
at the Springfield Armory in 1911, and 52 in 1913. Designed
and issued for field use,
no actual records of their use have been found in military documents
Great care should be taken in acquiring and authenticating
this rare bolo bayonet.
