Italian bayonet-knife for use on the M-1 carabine.
This example was made in 1960 at Arsenale Esercito Torino (Turin Army Arsenal).
The grip scales are the brown plastic type most common on Italian M4 bayonets. The workmanship on Italian M4 bayonets is quite good, in sharp contrast to the crudely-reworked U.S. bayonet above.
The scabbard is an Italian-made U.S. M8 clone, with the body made of fiberglass with an olive green gel coat. The belt hanger is made of khaki tan cotton webbing.
