wow nice knife, is it a Ka-bar? my friend has a USMC issue Ka-bar and its a beauty

its a Bayonet for an AR-15 rifle.
i dont think thats an AR-15 bayonet. it has a barrel ring but the butt cap is different from the an ar15 knife. it doesnt look like an m6, an m7, an m9, ar a usmc OKC-3s bayonet.
 i collect knives. thats a leather handle so i would guess it was from the vietnam war. america doesnt issue leather handled knives because they are not waterproof.

that's a wood handle its just the lighting and it cliped onto my AR-15 but it shakes quite a bit

that knife is a Beast!!!!!!!! i was going to buy one but it had a commemorative on it
cool knife. i bought 3 swiss army knives yesterday for $4 each on fleabay, they are airport security confiscation auctions. i also got a signature, so i'll be showing off my favorite knife sometime ;)
use a manual can opener it makes the cut so much better

If you use proper kindling (dry leaves, wood shavings you make with your dirty great knife), then you should be able to do without the lighter fuel. That means that you then have the ability to make and light a stove anywhere there is litter.
