The bayonet has a straight sword like polished blade which measures 15 3/4" long. It is fullered, it has an unusual feature of a short fuller on the top edge of the blade near the tip which aided penetration.

The top edge of the blade carries the manufacturer Chattlerault, the date of manufacture January 1861 and the model number date of 1842.
