Japanese M9 field knife

Sep 24, 1999
Buck exported some Model 188 M9 bayonets to Japan where they were marketed as "Field Knives" with some modifications to meet the strict Japanese firearms laws. They could not be attached to a rifle so the first ones deleted the locking mechanism. Later the barrel ring was deleted as well. Does anybody have either of these models for sale or trade? I collect only the M9 bayonet and have many of the Buck variants, but I do not have either Japanese model. If anybody can help me out on this, please e-mail me with the particulars including condition, price, and trade interests. Thanks for any help.

P.S. Always interested in any other unusual Buck M9's as well!
