I am very pleased with this and a believe it is a very good value.
Highly Recommended! I also own the nearly identical Rothco G.I. Style M-9 M9 Bayonet Black knife, which came a little duller and was slightly more expensive.
The Cons: I found that the fit and finish was poor. The wire cutter although functional, it was not as smooth or easy as the official version. The coating on the knife easily scratched and interfered with the operation of the wire cutter.
Overall it is a great knife for camping and general purpose. If you have ever been issued the official one in the military, there is no comparison. I returned the knife and bought an issued M9 for my purposes.
1.(NOT FULL TANG)I opened the knife and it was loose and rattling in my hand. I was like what the hell are you kidding me? the guard was loose and shakey and the blade wiggled! Thats when it became apparent this was not a full tang knife!!!! More like a cheap survival knife with a hollow handle. So I noticed a hex head nut at the end of the handle and tightened it with an allen wrench. This did tighten the knife and stop all wiggling and looseness. Was still super dissapointed to find out it was not a solid full tang knife but more something that would break and fail on you when you actually needed it.
2.(FAULTY CRAFTSMANSHIP)The wire cutter was hard as hell to get the knife to slide down on far enough to swivel and actually work. Now I did say hard as hell.... THen it was impossible to get off? it was stuck on there soo tight it would not come off! So if I use it in the field as wire cutters I wont be able to get my knife back off and use it as a knife! I took it to the table and lined up the groove and hammered it out. It then fell on the floor-
3.(VERY SOFT STEEL)Just falling on the floor from the table it hit a leg on the table and bent the edge!!! I mean seriously big eighth in. nick in the edge just from bouncing into and whacking an alluminam table leg. I could take my Kabar Becker and chop completely through that same leg and not have a nick in the blade! I have hit rocks and not nicked the blade on my BK-9! I really could not believe the size of the dent and how deep it was.
4.(DOES NOT FIT STANDARD AR-15)I read something about it not fitting regualr AR barrels but nothing for sure that it didnt. I saw several video's on youtube of people mounting these on their AR's but they only showed the barrel I couldnt tell it they were 16" or 18". I have a standard AR-15 civilian version. It does not fit my gun.
5. (SHOTTY PAINT JOB) I did read a lot of bad reviews on this but I am confirming its terrible. THe paint rubs off where the wire cutter attatches and up and down the blade from sliding it in the sheath.
The best part of this knife other than the price is the sheath! (I wish I would of paid more mind to the few negative reviews as opposed to all the idiots who claimed it was a great knife and sprung the extra cash for the real thing. Now I have a shotty knife that I wasted money on and still need to buy the real thing.) Its great! The knife is cool looking and would serve the purpose for looks but has no practical purpose as an actual bayonet or as even a descent knife. If you dont pay any attention to any of the negative reviews like I did, pay attention to this review!
