Title Schmidt-Rubin engineer bayonet, model 1911
Nationality Swiss
Period 1934
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This was introduced for the Schmidt-Rubin carbine of 1911, a straight pull bolt action weapon. The engineers in the Swiss Army carried this weapon with a leather scabbard from 1911 to WW2 (uniquely, they carried it with the release button facing the wearer's belt).

It has walnut grips, a steel-mounted leather scabbard, with a chrome plated blade and hilt. This leather scabbard is somewhat rarer than the usual steel one.

There is some age wear to the chrome finish throughout. The grips are in good shape, with some minor bruising. The scabbard seam has opened somewhat, but is still intact, the leather being in excellent shape apart from some minor surface wear.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
