Eickhorn did a production run of the M6 for Haiti, during the time your example was produced. The Hatian bayonets had large numbers on the blade, itself. Yours must be one that was sold commercially. I have an Eickhorn M7 of the same vintage as your M6, and another Eickhorn M7 that pre-dates your bayonet. Commercial M6 bayonets are not nearly as common as M5 or M7 types. Nice bayonet!

The bayonet cannot be abolished for the reason, if for no other, that it is the sole and exclusive embodiment of that willpower which, alone, both in war and everyday life, attains its object.—General M. I. Dragomirov
