Have you ever been in the heat of battle and ran out of ammunition and thought to yourself “Man I really wish I had a bayonet!”? Or have you ever wished that you could blend the integrated design of the Mosin-Nagant carbines integrated bayonet on an AR-15? Ontario Knife Company has just released a new and innovative tool for the modern bayonet charger – the Retractable Bayonet. The Retractable Bayonet is OKC’s answer for when hand-to-hand combat becomes necessary.

Ontario Knife Company Introduces the New Retractable Bayonet
The Ontario Knife Company Retractable Bayonet has a 6″ long by 1.5″ wide housing made from lightweight 6061-T6 aluminum with an anodized finish. The blade is a 6″ long retractable S35VN steel blade (59 Rockwell C hardened) which deploys with a pull of a stainless steel knob. The knob releases the spring-loaded knife and retracts it much in the way an “Out the Front” (OTF) blade would using the same stainless steel knob.
OKC has been making high-quality bayonets for the U.S. military for decades, and this new retractable bayonet design is unlike anything we’ve ever created before. With its unique retractable feature, premium materials used and ability to easily mount to your AR or any Picatinny Rail System, it truly is a multifunctional blade and we’re excited to launch it to the civilian market”
-Kenneth Trbovich, President/CEO Ontario Knife Company.
The knife is capable of being mounted to a Picatinny rail system and when deployed measures just over 13 long. The blade features a one-handed operation so your other hand can remain on the rifle it’s mounted to while the knife is being deployed. The New OKC Retractable Bayonet will be made in the USA and come with OKC’s lifetime warranty.
At the time of writing, it is unknown how much each OKC Retractable Bayonet will cost or when they will be available. If you’re looking to pick one of these up, you can keep track of future updates of the Retractable Bayonet at https://ontarioknife.com/.
