back cut on PAL M3


sactroop

Recommended Posts

So here are some images from auction 164440078325 on eBay.  I'm a little concerned about the blade of this knife.  I know the runout or back cut of a blades primary bevel can vary a lot based on different manufacturing practices.  

I just don't remember any M3's having anything like the radius of the back cut on this PAL.  Am I missing something here?

sactroop- You are correct, the back cut is wrong. Here is a picture from my PAL guard marked, it's a more rounded back cut.  SKIP

sactroop's is an example of someone using a late 60s, or later bayonet blade, w/ an M3 handle. Collecting is getting tougher, study up. The fakers are out there, and getting good at it.  SKIP
