    hello everyone! I am a collector of M1 Garand's and have recently gotten into bayonets. several years ago, I purchased several of them from CMP and one of them has me confused. I have a Utica Cutlery dated 1942 with the fuller going the length of the blade and through the point. So, I am assuming it has been cut down. The part that is confusing, is on the opposite side of the blade it is stamped UFH for Union Fork and Hoe. Does that mean UFH cut the blade down? If this is correct, how common is this?oh, and the scabbard is stamped US M7 [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG]

    IIRC, the original maker was on the left side...But it has been awhile.

    Not seeing the pics though.

    Found the pics on your other thread.
    This would be the original maker

    Thanks Takao, having the two company stamps on it was making me wonder what it was.
