Title Finnish bayonet for 7.62mm bolt action Nagant rifle
Nationality Finnish
Period c 1920s-1939
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This has a 30 cm single-edged blade for the Finnish army's Russian-designed bolt action rifle. Unlike the Russians, who used a socket bayonet for their rifle, the Finns chose a sword bayonet. It would appear that both rifle and bayonet were made in Finland. This may well have been used in the famous Winter War against USSR.

The scabbard has a blackened finish with some old rust speckling to the front. The blade has a brown finish, with the maker Hackman & Co punched at the forte. It has what looks like looks like a factory/arsenal sharpening. The grips appear to be stained beechwood.

The parcel has arrived - at the time you indicated.

The sword lives up to expectations and looks even better than on the website. The detail and etching is superb.

Thanks so much for your help and the extra information.
