The wire cutter feature was originally designed by Eickhorn in Germany during the the 1970's. They were made for numerous battle rifles in use at the time, but I don't recall seeing any for the M14, as it had already been replaced. There might be some prototypes floating around. You will have to do some research.
Eickhorn did not invent the wire cutting bayonet.

The AKM bayonet had a wire cutter incorporated in the design.

It was introduced in 1959.
