After several month of trying I was able to buy off eBay a M11 knife conversion kit from numberonegi (Howard), the kit includes a crossguard and pommel that replaces the bayonet hardware on the M9 knife. The unissued Phrobus blade and stainless tang were acquired off eBay and the black handle (some fitting required...) was acquired on Gunbroker.

Fitting was a little involved as the handle's clip-end tabs had to be sanded flat and the interior hollow for the large end of the tang had to be deepened to fit the tang properly, other than that, it was a snap.

Lastly, the balance is perfectly centered on the crossguard, I couldn't be happier with this conversion.
