Help identifying bayonet scabbard


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I have come into possession of this bayonet and scabbard that I am trying to find out the type and era of. It looks like the bayonet is a model M1 from the WW2 or Korea timeframes. The scabbard is throwing me for a loop. It doesnt carry the traditional flaming bomb of a US model. It has what looks like a crown and the letters F K F. Im assuming it was a foreign country that just copied our style post-WW2. The scabbard definitely feels like it has a wood body, and it looks like its made to attach to a US style pistol belt, having the bent wire hooks. Any ideas on the origin of this scabbard? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

Danish. My CMP Garand has a Danish Crown marked barrel, reported to be the finest made. Some truth to that, it gets 2" minus groups at 100 yards with HXP ammo, my other Garand with a mint USGI barrel gives me only 3" groups.Yours most likely a Danish return to the CMP.

FKF is an abbreviation of Førsvarets Krigsmateriel Førvaltning (Defense War Materiel Administration). This marking was used prior to 1960.

The bayonet cannot be abolished for the reason, if for no other, that it is the sole and exclusive embodiment of that willpower which, alone, both in war and everyday life, attains its object.General M. I. Dragomirov
