British Shortened Martini Henry Yataghan Sword Bayonet And Scabbard. BAYO 573 - BAYO 573
This is a shortened Martini-Henry bayonet and scabbard for use by cadets. The blade has been converted from the longer yataghan style blade by shortening it and re-shapeing the point which means the fuller runs through to the point. The only marking is the blade carrying the initials A.S. The mortice slot has been chamfered for Martini-Henry rifles and the muzzle ring has been bushed to 18mm. The rest of the bayonet is with original configuration with black leather grips and a leaf spring press stud. The scabbard is a shortened version of the original. See Skennerton, item B224 on pages 176 and 177. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 573

British Brown Bess Socket Bayonet And Scabbard. BAYO 570 - BAYO 570
This is a British socket bayonet for the Brown Bess musket and is fitted with a post 1860 modification locking ring. The bayonet is similar to item 127 in the Indian section of Skennerton, on pages 328 and 329. Many of the earlier land pattern bayonets were converted with the modification of a locking ring but as the original dimensions were retained, it can only be concluded that this bayonet was intended for use on the early style of musket converted to percussion. The ricasso has a stamp of a large letter S on it which probably stands for S Hill. The scabbard is brass mounted brown leather. See also The Brown Bess Bayonet by Graham Priest. The socket bayonet has a 14 3/8” long blade. Price includes UK delivery. BAYO 570

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
