1908 U.S Army Springfield Arsenal (SA) M1905 Bayonet & Early Pattern Leather & Canvas Covered Scabbard. Sn 20102 - 20102
The M1905 bayonet was produced from 1906 to 1922 by Springfield Armoury and Rock Island Arsenal (RIA). The blade and handle frame were forged as a single piece with a wide, square-shaped fuller. The ribbed hand grips were made of walnut and attached to the handle with a screw. The screw also held the catch mechanism, manipulated with a button under the crossguard, that was used to fix the bayonet to the rifle's bayonet lug. In mid-1941, it was decided to restart production of the M1905 bayonet. To simplify production, these later bayonets had handles with black or dark red ribbed grips, made of phenol formaldehyde resin, the earliest type of synthetic plastic. Production was scheduled to begin in January 1942, but the first bayonets were not delivered until April, with quantity deliveries not beginning until the summer of 1942. Despite initial setbacks, the M1905 bayonet was manufactured in sufficient numbers to keep up with the widespread introduction of the new M1 Garand rifle in 1942. By the end of 1942, all six manufacturers had changed the shape of their fullers to a narrower, round-bottomed shape. The later version of the M1905 bayonet with plastic grips is sometimes referred to as the "M1942" by collectors and historians. This is an excellent 1908 dated M1905 Bayonet made by ‘SA’ (see White & Watts ‘The Bayonet Book’ item 921 pages 411 and 434). The 45 cm long blued steel blade with fullers is stamped by the maker ‘SA’ above Frankford arsenal ignited grenade mark and date 1908. The reverse has ‘US’ army acceptance mark and number ‘347740’ . The correct, walnut grips are ribbed & correctly held by a single screw. The wood has knocks, bumps and bruises to be expected. The bayonet has the correct press button at the cross guard which releases the locking catch on the rifle and also holds the bayonet firmly in the scabbard. The scabbard in excellent order is the early pattern of heavy leather and canvas sewn over a wooden frame. The throat has the correct brass belt bar. The scabbard has a brown leather chape. The price includes U.K. delivery. Sn 20102

This is a nice early sawback bayonet with part muzzle ring and without the flash guard.

The newly founded company used traditional techniques for sword making and each of their then employees specialised in one task in the sword making process. This was in accordance to the Division of Labour act devised by the Sword makers Guild of Solingen).

*Very Rare Late War* Japanese Arisaka Type 30 Bayonet & Scabbard. BAYO 553. - BAYO 553
This is a very rare late war example by ‘Toyada Jido Shokki Seisakusho Arsenal’ (Toyoda Automatic Loom Works- Toyoda made bayonets from 1938-1945. Toyoda Automatic Loom Works began producing automobiles in 1933. In 1937, the automobile department became a separate company which grew into what today as Toyota Motor Sales). The pommel is rectangular, with shaped wooden grips. The 39 ¾ cm clean blade (51 cm overall) is marked with the arsenal logos. The scabbard is wooden with a metal mouth piece and retains the majority of its original green paint. See bayonets of Japan by Raymond C. Labar, page 175 for a virtually similar example. Labar states the rarity of this bayonet is ‘8’! The price for this extremely rare bayonet and scabbard includes UK delivery. BAYO 553. (Box 1)

*Very Scarce* L1A1 Bayonet and Scabbard Converted to L1A3 Specification. 20114. - 20114
This is a scarce conversion of an ‘L1A1’ bayonet which has retained the ‘L1A1’ grips, but has the ‘L1A3’ designation stamped to the top of the pommel. Most of the ‘L1A1’ bayonets were converted in 1958, which was a year after the original issue; this was due to the fact that the long press stud caused the bayonet to be easily removed from the rifle by rioters and confrontations with civilians. They mostly had new grips with the ‘L1A3’ designation fitted, but a few retained their original ‘L1A1’ grips and had the new designation ‘L1A3 0257’ stamped into the top of the pommel. The blade carries a ‘B58’ stamped to the ricasso. This example appears to have been chromed for parade use and is contained in its ‘No5 Mk1’ scabbard and white parade frog, which bears its previous assignees which gives a glimpse into its history. This is a scarce bayonet and a must for the serious British bayonet collector. See ‘Skennerton’ page 260 for further reference. The price includes UK delivery. 20114.

WWII U.S. M1 Carbine M4 Bayonet & Scabbard. 20156. - 20156
This is a very nice M4 Bayonet made by ‘Camillus’ and marked to the cross guard with ‘U.S. M4 Camillus’. The blade retains the majority of its original finish, and the hilt which has the usual leather washers with plastic spacers to the top and bottom is firm and tight. The pommel carries a number ‘140’. The scabbard is a ‘U.S.M8A1’ by PWH (Pennsylvania Working Home for the Blind) (founded in 1874 at Philadelphia as the Pennsylvania Working Home for Blind Men the Working Home served as a model of its type. During the U.S. Civil War 1861-65, Pennsylvania raised 337,936 soldiers for the Union Army, more than any other state apart from New York. This left Pennsylvania with a large population affected by wartime injuries. An academic institution, the Institute had little to offer in the way of employment training. Many of the men blinded during the War already possessed a trade, but were not employable in the community) complete with its leather leg tie. A very nice ‘complete’ combination. The price includes UK delivery. 20156.

Early Type Pre 1858 British WD Army Sappers & Miners 1855 Pattern Lancaster Rifle Pipeback Sword Bayonet & Scabbard. Sn 20119 - 20119
British Sappers and Miners Units adopted an oval barrel rifle in 1855 and produced their own distinctive bayonet with a Falchion or pipe backed blade. The leather scabbard had brass fittings. After 1857 the Sappers and Miners were renamed the Engineers so the blade is sometimes called the Engineers Bayonet. After removal from Engineer service they became a side arm particularly for the Medical Corps. Early examples had a leaf spring secured by a rivet but post 1858 the springs on these bayonets were secured by a screw. The British Government ordered quantities of these bayonets from German manufacturers & both the London and Birmingham trade (see pages 121-124 and item B160 of British & Commonwealth Bayonets By Skennerton). This is an excellent original example of the 1855 Lancaster bayonet. It has a blackened 24” pipeback blade, brass cross guard with muzzle ring and brass pommel with correct flat steel spring bar with pre 1858 riveted flat spring and push button release which works as it should. The ricasso has WD and ‘Crown 22’ inspection marks. It's original chequered black grips have just light service wear and are correctly secured by rivets. There are no visible maker or Regiment marks on the bayonet. The bayonet measures 29 ¼” overall and is complete with its original leather scabbard with brass locket and brass chape. The leather is undamaged and all stitching intact. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 20119
