Title Arisaka-Mauser bayonet
Nationality Japanese
Period 1944/5
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is the ersatz version made in the closing years of WW2 without a fuller or a quillon to economise on production costs. The rifle was the classic 6mm Japanese Mauser. There are arsenal marks on the base of the blade and the grips are hardwood, rivetted into position.

The pommel has medium surface rust and pitting. However, the bayonet button functions effectively and the blade is fairly clean, although it has some severe polishing at some stage.

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.
