I have both the M7 and M8 bayonets and I struggle everytime I go into the field with whether to bring the M7 or M9.

I tend to choose the M9 because the blade is heavier and useful for chopping and the sawback works well for small limbs. I also very much enjoy the wire cutting features on the blade and scabbard. It came in really handy one day when I wasd alone and got my boot caught in some hog wire stepping over a fence. Without it, I would have broken my ankle.

My issue with the M9 though is that I cannot get the blade to take an edge worth a damn whereas the M7 has a nice dual edge.

Whats your experience been with them?

Highlander,

I have an M-9 that came razor sharp. I like it's heft and the saw back. With that said, I haven't owned any others so I can't compare. I hope it never gets to "fixed bayonets" but as a general knife, I like it.

For hacking and slashing I just got a Kabar Cutlass, "now that's a knife"
