Details

The OKC-3S is a bayonet developed by the United States Marine Corps to replace the M7 bayonet. This multi-purpose bayonet provides greater durability than the M7 and also functions as a fighting knife.

The OKC-3S Bayonet is part of a series of weapon improvements begun in 2001 by Commandant of the Marine Corps James L. Jones to expand and toughen hand-to-hand combat training for Marines, including training in the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program and knife fighting. In the Multi-Purpose Bayonet program, 33 different knives were evaluated. The OKC-3S performed best, or next to best, in nearly all testing categories. A contract for OKC-3S was made in December 2002 and production began in January 2003.

These bayonets are made by Ontario Knife Company and are new.
