There some of these floating around and the work is all the same on those I have personally examined. Homer Brett has more info on these which will, I believe, corroborate my info. Yr, obdt svt Al
  13. I think these are "Paul Hout"specials. I knew him in the 70's. Superb collection and wealth of knowledge regarding M1 bayonets. I think he and a buddy made these up ....got my USS ATLANTA CL 51 from him. Style of workmanship is the same on all I have seen. Just saying. But, he was a great guy to a new collector, I still have many bayonets I bought from him.
  14. Item posted was made from a PAL bayonet. The "notch outs"on the back of the crossguard are PAL production distinct. Also, the oval guard is distinct to PAL production on the "bayonet knives" and their bayonet prodution. IE; I can spot a PAL bayonet w/o picking it up just by the "notch outs ". A PAL spear-point is typical. Possibly postwar surplus parts or war production rejects. That style sheath also shows up on PAL products with some regularity. It is a very nice example of PAL "bayonet" knife
