The OKC-3S was developed by Ontario for the US Marines as a replacement for the M7 Bayonet for use with the M16 . It was deployed in 2003 and is exclusively manufactured by the Ontario Knife Company. It's mission was to be more durable than the M7 and a better hand-to-hand combat knife. The OKC-3S Marine Bayonet has a non reflective black phosphate coated proprietary carbon steel blade. Dynaflex handle ergonomically grooved to reduce hand fatigue with positioning access point for quick position redirect in reduced visibility situations. Polyester elastomer scabbard with fitted internal stainless steel spring friction to secure bayonet. Ceramic coated aluminum honing rod on back of scabbard.
