The DrillMaster Driller’s Bayonet.

Drillers, have you ever seen armed exhibition? How about bladed exhibition? Ever wanted to start bladed drill but wish there was a safer way? When it comes to new Drillers performing or practicing armed exhibition drill with a blade there are a lot of things that come to hand. Let me first start off by letting everyone know, not everyone can stick a bayonet on their rifle for the first time and expect to be pro, unfortunately not everyone is “gifted” like that, it does not work that way. Otherwise everyone would be putting a bayonet on their drill rifle without a care. In reality their are a number of concerns that arise when beginning to drill with a bayonet for the first time. From getting used to the new weight and length, to learning to find the new balance point on your rifle. These are some areas to look at but don’t really effect you much since practice will help fix those concerns. Another one of the biggest issues that drillers would be more concerned about when it comes to being a new bladed driller is obviously safety or preventing a serious injury. I believe safety should always be the main priority when it comes to armed drilling, without safety armed exhibition drill would be more dangerous then it already is, especially if wanting to start bladed drill. With all this being said and with the efforts of Mr. John “DrillMaster” Marshall, we are honored to introduce to all The DrillMaster Driller’s Bayonet. The very first real metal bayonet designed just for drillers.

Through my years of drilling I have drilled with a number of weapons and styles. From stud to bladed drill, I enjoy every little thing I can get from drilling. When I saw the Drillers Bayonet for the first time i was surprised. I could not believe my eyes, “a bayonet designed just for Drillers” I said, This was the just what I needed. I have drilled with a bayonet before plenty of times but not with one designed just for drill. Mr. Marshall was out at his table in Daytona Beach last may when I said hello since our last meeting in 2010. He introduced me to the DrillMaster Driller’s Bayonet there. I slowly examined the bayonet as I notice the flat base surface of the bayonet, their was a “blade” but not a sharpened one. In other words this bayonet was flat with no real or main sharp edge to cut or slice any part of your body. He gladly let me attach it to my M-1 rifle and drill with it for a minute or two. When I started to drill with it I noticed that I had this sense of security and calmness throughout my drill and flow. I was cautious about the bayonet but this time not as intense as previous times. I also started to notice the piece of mind I had going knowing that I was not going to hurt nor cut myself with this bayonet. This was a new experience for me as I have only spun with a sharpened bayonet before this one. After I was done I thanked Mr. Marshall as I handed back that bayonet to him. This was a great day for me and all Drillers out there. Now with the help and permission of Mr. Marshall I am drilling and presenting the bayonet to many drillers especially in San Antonio, Texas that this is indeed a helpful tool with it comes to bladed drill. I now drill stubbed or bladed everyday no matter what time, night or day just depending on the flow of energy I feel that day. All this and more is being accomplished with the help of this bayonet and Mr. Marshall, I highly recommend this item to anyone with the passion to learning a new style of drill with a bayonet. As always drill safe, hard and have fun!

Many thank. to Mr. John “DrillMaster” Marshall

To all the Drillers out there, “I don’t usually drill with a bayonet, but when I do, I prefer the DrillMaster Driller’s Bayonet. Drill Hard my friends” – J. Angel Solis Jr.
