This special Ontario Bayonet and factory tour package was created specifically for the American Knife & Tool Institute to present to a lucky new member or current member, who joined or renewed their membership during 2011.
The bayonet wastaken from the Ontario Cutlery archives. It is one of the first 200 OKC3s Marine Corps Bayonets produced and set aside in the company’s vault. Of those originally archived 200 knives, 52 were used to fill urgent requests from deploying Marines, when the company did not have regular production run bayonets immediately available.
The reverse side of the 8″ proprietary carbon steel clip point blade is laser engraved with the AKTI logo and the obverse side with a quote from Ronald Reagan, the Marine Corp logo and the serial #001 of 001. This one-of-a-kind knife with sheath ships with a glass top walnut display case, and includes a Certificate of Authenticity attesting to its rarity, and a certificate for a one night stay in western New York and private tour of the Ontario Cutlery facility, to be scheduled at a mutually agreeable time within six months after the drawing.
