Imperial German WW1 1915 Dated Old Pattern Model 1898/05aA (aA alter Art) Sawback Bayonet Complete With Steel Scabbard. BAYO 516 - BAYO 516
This is a 1915 dated 1898/05aA ‘butcher’ bayonet with no flash guard and extended muzzle ring ‘ears’. The old pattern bayonets were issued without flash guards but early on in the war it was found that the muzzle flash from the K98 rifle was causing the wooden grips to char or even be blown off. It was then decided to fit a steel flash guard along the top edge of the hilt. This example pre-dates the fitting of this flash guard and also as the longer ears or extensions of the crossguard. The blade carries the Simson and Co. Suhl trademark and the spine carries a crowned W over 15. Most of Simpson and Co’s production took place in 1915 as they then concentrated on the production of rifles as did Haenel and Schilling. See German Bayonets, The Models 98/02 and 98/05 by Anthony Carter, pages 86 and 87. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 516

WW2 India Pattern No1 MkIII* Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 513 - BAYO 513
This is a nice and crisply marked No1 MkIII* India pattern bayonet. The blade carries the crown over GRI and MKII over 13 44 (December 1944 date) and R.F.I.. This bayonet was therefore made at the Rifle Factory Ishapore in December 1944. The bayonet has the squared pommel and parallel tang and grips which was a feature of these later bayonets, done in order to; save on machining time. The bayonet has an 11.9 inch blade with a false edge to the tip and carried several inspectors stamps. Many of these bayonets are marked on the blade as MK II when in fact the official designation was No 1 MK III*. The bayonet is contained in its original long No1 MKI scabbard with a tear drop frog stud. The frog is a P ’37 webbing version. See Skennerton item 156 on pages 346 – 356, in particular his comments of page 350 for items 155 and 156. This is a nice India pattern variation bayonet. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 513

India Pattern Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 512 - BAYO 512
This is an Indian conversion of an original pattern 1907 bayonet by shortening the blade and giving it a false edge at the tip. The fuller runs through to the tip and many of these were converted during the war before the later un-fullered blade versions were introduced. Skennerton shows a similar one as item 152 on page 348. However, many were converted in the 1950s and this is likely to be one of these as the false edge has more of a pronounced bowie shape. There are feint markings on the blade but all the metal parts have been polished or chromed, possibly for parade use. The scabbard is a shortened P 1907 version and the frog is a Pattern ’37 webbing one which is dated 1942. This is an interesting variation for the India pattern bayonet collector. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 512

British No7 Mk1L Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 511 - BAYO 511

The bayonet has a swivelling pommel which allowed it to be fixed to the No4 rifle and the Sten sub machine gun.

India Pattern No1 MK1++ Bayonet, Scabbard and Frog. BAYO 508 - BAYO 508
This is an India pattern bayonet converted from a 1907 pattern bayonet. The original markings are still legible (crown ofer G.R. 1907 and 4 18 (April 1918 date) and SANDERSON). These bayonets were converted by India from full length to the shortened version in the 1950s. This example has Mk1++ stamped over the crowned G.R, on one side and F.R.56 on the other side of the blade. This denotes a factory repair in 1956. The blade has a false edge with the fuller running to the tip and has ben re-blued. The grips have an Indian inspection on one side.

WW2 Nazi German Occupation Manufacture Czech CSZ Brno VZ 24 Bayonet, Scabbard & Frog. BAYO 505 - BAYO 505
This is a WW2 Czech VZ24 rifle bayonet and scabbard made under the German occupation in WW2. The bayonet carries the German military factory code of tgf designating manufacture by the Tscheckische Gewehr Fabrik (Czech rifle weapons factory). The Germans continued the manufacture of both the VZ23 and VZ24 bayonets through WW2 but not in the same large numbers as the Mauser K98 bayonet. This bayonet has a 12” blued blade with fullers marked CSZ (Èeskoslovenská zbrojovka a.s., Brno), together with V & H, steel muzzle ring and pommel. The wooden grips are held on by 2 screw bolts. The scabbard is made of blued steel. VZ24 bayonets made under German occupation seldom appear. Our example has post war marks including ‘crossed swords 50’ next to the Nazi manufacturer code indicating post post war refurbishment, most likely for Israel (see Martin J. Brayley, An Illustrated History of Bayonets, Pages 52 – 54). The scabbard is fitted with original leather frog. All leather & stitching of the frog are intact. The rear of the frog has an indistinct impressed mark. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 505.

Yugoslavia M1924 Bayonet And Scabbard. BAYO 271 - BAYO 271
This is a nice 1924 pattern bayonet made to fit the Belgian FN24 an FN30 and the Czech VZ24 rifles which the Yugoslav army was using at that time. The Kragujenac Arsenal also made the FN24 rifle and bayonet under licence. This is a Yugoslav made bayonet as it has the distinctive grip bolt head used by the Yugoslavians which requires a special bifurcated tool to remove them. The blade is heavily blued as is the pommel. The crossguard carries the number 4329 and an indistinct mark. The scabbard is all steel and the frog stud carries the number 36100. See An Illustrated History of Bayonets by Martin J. Brayley, page 252. This is an uncommon bayonet in very good condition. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 271

British Trials Z2E1 Bayonet With Shortened Blade, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 265 - BAYO 265
This is one of the Z2E1 trials bayonets that has had the blade reground making it 10mm shorter than the normal length. Skennerton shows one as item B 318 and states that although there are some claims that these were a shorter version, it is more likely that some suffered damage to the points and at a later stage were reground to make them saleable on the commercial market. All other features remain the same as the standard bayonet. This bayonet carries the X2E1 designation stamped underneath the tang along with a serial number 7290. The catch on the pommel is the larger version and the steel scabbard is correctly marked to the mouthpiece with X1E1. See Skennerton item B318 on Pages 256 and 257. The price for this bayonet includes UK delivery. BAYO 265

SCARCE, Portuguese Model 1885 Guedes (Kropatschek) Bayonet & Scabbard. Sn 17201:2 - 17201:2
This is a Model 1885 Guedes bayonet, often referred to as the Kropatschek bayonet & is based on the Austrian M1873 bayonet. These bayonets are not common in the collector's market. These bayonets were originally intended for the Guedes-Castro rifle but when Portugal decided to adopt the 8mm Kropatschek bolt action rifle, the bayonet was used instead of the new rifle (see Brayley 'An Illustrated History Of Bayonets' pages 182 & 183). The fullered blade is 18 ½” length and measures 23 ½” overall. The blade has just staining consistent with age. There is a small inspection mark on the blade and ‘GG291’ on the cross guard which has the correct muzzle ring. Its slab wood grips are secure and have just bumps and bruises to be expected. The steel pommel has the correct bayonet release button which functions correctly. The steel scabbard has a frog bar & ball end. Sn 17201:2

MINT, 1965 Italian AEP (Arsenale Esercito Piacenza) Knife Bayonet For Beretta BM59 & M70 Assault Rifles With Scabbard & Integral Frog. BAYO 445 - BAYO 445
This is a near mint Italian Knife bayonet for Beretta BM59 & M70 Assault Rifles. It closely resembles the American M4 bayonet on which it is based. It has a 6 ½” long M4 style parkerised blade. The blade is manufacturer marked ‘star above AEP’ which is the manufacturer mark of the Italian Arsenale Esercito Piacenza. The blade is also numbered ‘F55928’.

The scabbard has no manufacturer marks but is based on the US M8A1 scabbard (see pages 191 & 201 item 452 of ‘The Bayonet Book’ by White & Watts. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 445
