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

SOLD SOLD (01/04) British Shortened Martini Henry Yataghan Sword Bayonet And Scabbard. BAYO 263 - BAYO 263
This is a scarce converted yataghan sword bayonet which has been shortened for cadet use. Most of these conversions were affected at the end of the 19th Century. The blade has been shortened with a re-shaped point which means the fuller runs through to the point. The rest of the bayonet is with original configuration with black leather grips and a leaf spring press stud. The only markings are the number 8 on both sides of the cross guard and one side of the pommel. Many of these bayonets have Medical Corps markings and it appears that this bayonet was carried like the shortened Lancaster bayonet .the scabbard is a shortened version of the original.
