militaria item Enfield bayonet pattern 56/58 for artillery carbine, Luneschloss
- British
The real interest of this bayonet is the metal scabbard. Most of these bayonets have leather and iron ones, but for some reason the artillery were issued with polished iron examples. The rarity ratio of iron scabbards is 1:10 against leather examples. The maker's mark at the forte of the blade is 'P.D.L.' for Luneschloss of Solingen.

militaria item S84/98 Mauser bayonet, with original buff leather frog
- German
This is the so-called 'cavalry' bayonet, on account of numerous extant photos showing it in use with the mounted arm. It is marked on one side of the forte 'Gottlieb // Hammesfahr // Solingen-Foche' and on the other 'Bayard', representing a Belgian firm whose stock of unhilted blades was seized in 1914.

militaria item Prussian forestry cutlass with by-knife, knot and ivory grip
- German
This is the classic Forestry cutlass worn by senior Foresters (denoted by the ivory grip and the gold/green knot) across Europe from the early 18th century onwards. They continued in use through the Weimar era and Third Reich, only latterly losing the by-knife. Lower ranks wore cutlasses with a stag horn grip and a plain green knot.

militaria item 1st model Lutwaffe sword by E & F Horster, Solingen
- German
This is a good example of a first pattern sword, which could only be worn by officers and senior NCOs. It has the early nickel silver mounts throughout, together with most of the original EPNS finish. It was worn without a portepee on a lightweight baldric under the uniform jacket. The second pattern sword, with aluminium mounts, followed in 1938.)

militaria item Musketon bayonet, 1842 model
- French
This is the first model, with a leaf spring in the hilt, for the 1842 model Musketon (a French carbine). It has two nice, clear stamps at the base of the blade (almost certainly French arsenal inspectors' punches), one being a capital 'B' (I think), the other a capital 'G' surmounted by a star, all within a wreath.

militaria item Prussian artillery hanger, private purchase
- German
This is a gunner's 'walking out' hanger, akin in purpose to the dress bayonets of the Third Reich era, ie to be worn with dress uniform when not on duty in barracks. The issue version of this weapon was a much more substantial affair, although both continued in use throughout WW1.

militaria item 1st Empire naval officer's (possibly a surgeon) sword, Year 12 model
- French
This is a senior administrative officer's sword, probably either a surgeon or an apothecary, viz the twin-headed serpent on the guard. The little dolphin head at the end of the knuckle bow by the pommel indicates the naval branch of service. The mounts are ormolu and the grip is ebony.

militaria item Naval dirk
- British
These dirks would have been carried by Royal Navy as well as merchant marine officers, even, rather more rarely, by army officers. This classic dirk has a whalebone haft (which, at first glance, might appear to be of walrus ivory, but on closer inspection is definitely whale bone) and iron mounts. The style of hilt, pommel and grip dates it.

militaria item Plug bayonet with horn hilt
- Spanish
This is a typical 18th-century Spanish weapon, designed to be stuffed down a musket barrel when out on a boar hunt or in a military context. Amazingly, it appears to have most of the original scabbard, with the top chape of pressed tin with a decorative motif. The bottom chape is missing.

militaria item Baden bridging column NCO's sword, model 1889
- German
The hilt is marked 'B.K.71.D.29.' for Brucken Kolonne (bridging column), weapon number 71, 29th Division. This unit was part of the 14th Baden Pioneer battalion. Ordnance stamps proliferate throughout the hilt. The blade is marked with a crown over W (for Wilhelm, Emperor of Germany) over 93 (for 1893), with an ordnance stamp below all.
