[ b553 ] b553 rare 1st generation US Phrobis M9 bayonet 1 of 1034 made
rare 1st generation Phrobis M9 bayonet (1 of 1034 made) fantastic condition & a very hard model to find, I paid a fortune for this bayonet & ITS LISTED AT ALMOST COST PRICE, I also purchased a collection of others ,this is the only gen1, but i have gen2, gen3 & 5 versions of the gen 4 that i will list over time.
With only 1034 of these 1st generation examples in the world there would be very limited examples here in Australia & i could only find 1 other example for sale in the USA but more expensive than mine.
Phrobis contracted with Buck to make around 300,000 of these for the US Army, one requirement of the contract was that be no marks on the knife/bayonet that would identify who actually made it, Buck added a year code, the Chevron to the 1st run ( the following resembles the mark for the chevron > its a little like our broad arrow expect the middle stroke is missing ) they added the chevron thinking it wouldn’t violate the contract in any way etc & thinking it would help provide helpful information in time to come.
They were instructed to stop the practise immediately which they did but had sent out only 1034 of the examples with the chevron mark to the US Army. so for the collector of the Phrobis M9 knife / bayonet these appear to be the holy grail.
