bayonets

I started life as a bayonet collector aged 12! A fascinating subject and one that, unlike swords, is still within the reach of the average beginner collector. This field is extremely well-covered by good reference books, mostly in English (such as The German bayonet by John Walter and British & Commonwealth bayonets by Ian D Skennerton & Robert Richardson), and tends not to be readily plagued with reproduction items. As a subject, it's an excellent introduction to the restoration and care of edged weapons.

militaria item Martini-Henry artillery bayonet, 1879 model
- British
This was designed for the M-H artillery carbine, as the long blade (26") enabled the combination of weapons to compete on equal terms with contemporary European arms. It would have seen extensive service in the Zulu War, First Boer War, Egypt and Sudan campaigns and the Afghan War of 1879.

militaria item K98 Mauser bayonet, Carl Eickhorn, matching numbers
- German
This was the classic companion for the Landser (the German squaddie) through all their European and Russian battle tours from 1939-45 and is the development of the S98/84 bayonet from WW1. This example has matching numbers to the scabbard and blade and is clearly maker marked at the scabbard throat and the forte of the blade.

militaria item Arisaka Mauser bayonet, model 1897
- Japanese
It is hard to determine the date of manufacture, which could be anywhere between 1897 and the early 1940s. These weapons were carried during the Russo-Japanese war of 1904 and then in the occupation of Manchuria in the 1930s and the subsequent expansion into China, followed by extensive use in WW2. This is a Nagoya arsenal marked example.

militaria item Mauser bayonet, 1924 model
- Belgian
This bayonet, originally introduced into service in 1916, is clearly the 1924 model on account of the scabbard formation (matching numbers to scabbard, blade and hilt). This would have been the standard bayonet of the Belgian army in the 1920s, then captured by the Third Reich and used by them in rear units in WW2.

militaria item Mauser bayonet with Waffenamt stamp
- Polish
This 1939-dated bayonet has the Polish eagle stamped at the forte and a German Waffenamt stamp signifying acceptance into Wehrmacht service. It was made at Radom, a large arsenal just outside Warsaw, and stamped as such. It would have been used by the German army after its capture from the Poles.

militaria item Garand bayonet
- American
This is the regular production, as opposed to the shortened version of the old bayonet from the Great War. The Garand was the first semi-automatic combat rifle adopted by the US army in the early stages of WW2. The novelty feature of the locking device comes from the Krag Jorgensen Danish system.

militaria item Springfield bayonet
- American
This is the classic US bayonet for the 'dough boys' of WW1. They were sometimes later issued, together with the rifle, to Home Guard units in WW2 as part of the American Lend Lease programme supporting Britain with arms in the dark days of 1940/1. It is maker marked Remington and dated 1917.

militaria item Mannlicher bayonet, model 1888
- Bulgarian
This is an Austrian Steyr-made bayonet for the model 1888 Mannlicher rifle, of which the Bulgarian government bought around 100,000 examples in the 1890s. These would almost certainly have seen service in the last of the Balkan wars of the early 20th century and quite possibly in WWI.
