Michael,

That IS an interesting story and I never would have thought about calling one that

Comment by Clint Thompson on December 14, 2016 at 12:05

No tent pegs here. Thanks for the story and pic. Interesting history Michael.

Comment by Michael E. Roper on December 14, 2016 at 11:52

I like bayonets...but only the pushing end! Don't want to be on the other end.

1941 Johnson rifles have a reciprocating barrel and would not operate effectively with a heavy bayonet. So Johnson came up with a "skeleton" bayonet which was much lighter in weight. The resulting "bayonet/knife" was not well received by the troops. It was pretty much useless except maybe as a tent peg. If your rifle functions by the barrel reciprocating .....and it has a bayonet on the end and you stick it into somebody.....your gun isn't going to function?

I love anything odd that has a story to it. Thus, I will buy any 1941 Johnson bayonet which I can afford. If any of you have such a "tent peg" and will part with it...please let me know. Here is a picture:

The majority of my knife collection consists of military knives and bayonets. My latest acquisition is a very nice RAD Hewer from WW2. These knives were issued to the civilian/home guard/militia/ "Labor Corp" in Germany. The RAD Hewer is engraved on the blade with a script in German which translates into: "Work Enobles"

Wow, neat knife there Andrew

Comment by Clint Thompson on February 25, 2016 at 9:31

Andrew this is a cool story and a nice looking knife. The blade is most likely carbon steel with the handle being brass. I would say...not sure...it is an older knife which was made in Mexico. When you found this treasure, if the blade was not rusted then it was recently placed under the house for a reason. The reason for placing this knife under the house would be an interesting subject.
