Title Bayonet for Mannlicher rifle, model 1895
Nationality Austrian
Period c 1895
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This rather scruffy example has the Austrian double eagle on one side of the forte, along with the regimental mark of the 12th Infantry Regiment. On the other side, it has the mark OE above WG, being the mark of the Steyer munition factory. There are further unit and/or weapon serial numbers on the pommel.

The blade has medium pitting towards the point on both sides and the grip has the nice early peace-time fruitwood grips one associates with the earlier examples of this bayonet. The scabbard would have been of steel with an oblong frog hook.

testimonials

Sword arrived today. Fabulous. This is an excellent example of a fighting sword of its period, and a real gem. The 1828 Pattern is such a gorgeous sword, and this is a fine example. Even my bride is impressed and she doesn’t really get swords.
