Title Schmidt-Rubin Pioneer bayonet for 1911 carbine
Nationality Swiss
Period c 1914
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is a nice example of the Pioneer carbine bayonet, complete with leather frog and much original finish on the scabbard. The blade is ordnance marked with the Swiss cross and a maker mark: 'HS'. These sawback bayonets would have been carried by Pioneer elements within Swiss infantry regiments, and, in a leather scabbard, by engineer troops.

Apart from two small edge nicks (one 3" from the point, the other some 4" from the forte), the blade is in good shape. The walnut grips are in excellent condition, with some light age bruising from service wear and tear. The hilt would appear to be stainless steel or just possibly a high grade chrome finish.

My order arrived this morning, thanks for the prompt delivery.

Two excellent original pieces, I must say.

Buckle is in minty condition retaining so much detail esp plummage on eagle's neck and chest, like to see those 'creases' on the legs also... a beautiful example of an early O&C buckle.

Belt is very interesting, rather thin, CROUPON stamped and also behind the tongue...maybe Allegmeine but no SS markings as you state. Beautiful piece none the less.

Thanks for a speedy transaction Chris, I am very happy with my purchase :)
