Tsuba is iron mokko shape inlaid with brass & copper (gilded gold) depicting a Tiger by a river under crescent moon, very good quality late Edo and needs research to identify man or school. Tsuka very good original condition with good quality un-signed soft metal Fuchi Kashira depicting Samurai fighting on water in boats. Menuki are top quality in shakudo & gold depicting a bundle of decorative war arrows. A Lovely looking Katana with top quality mounts. Would fit in any sword collection.

SOLD SOLD (01/03) French Mannlicher Berthier M1892 2nd Pattern Artillery Carbine Bayonet And Scabbard - BAYO 608
This is a French Mannlicher Berthier M1892 2nd Pattern bayonet and scabbard. This bayonet was made to be used with the Mannlicher Berthier Artillery Carbine and is a very nice design. This is the 2nd Pattern with wood grips and with the quillon partially removed. This was due to the bayonets serial number being on the lower part of the quillon. 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 blade has a notch on both sides near to the crossguard which locks the bayonet in the scabbard with a click. This is the later design with smooth wood grips secured with two rivets. The muzzle ring overlaps the grips and has a notch cut in at the rear which engaged at the rifles foresight. The quillon is stamped on one side with 47373. The ricasso is stamped on one side with inspection marks. The pommel has a push release which operates as it should. The scabbard is steel and has its scarce leather frog. This is a very nice looking bayonet, (see White & Watts The Bayonet Book, pages 85 & 98 item 214 and An Illustrated History of Bayonets by Martin Brayley, Page 72-74). The price includes UK delivery.
