This bayonet was a long saw tooth model the was issued to the following troops, Engineers, Mounted Artillery Sgt.s, Corporals that were drivers, saddle makers, horse transport soldiers and drivers for motorized field artillery and heavy artillery.
This model differs slightly from other saw tooth models in that it has a bulge at the end of the blade, and is also fuller on one side of the blade.
This was issued to troops who carried the 1911 Carbine and the K-31.
