Nationality Austrian
Period c 1914
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This example has no maker's mark, but is a good clean pipe-back blade with a fine silver nickel finish, which, together with the hilt, is virtually 100% intact. There is some minor pickling of the plating to the scabbard. The knot is that of a Honved cavalry officer (Hungarian army) for the time of Kaiser Carl, 1917-18.

My Arisaka arrived at 9.00am. Very prompt delivery and excellent packaging! The blade is superb.. and just what I was after, its in very fine condition and just as you described.. I've referenced it in my copy of Raymond La Bar's book "Bayonets of Japan".

Many thanks, Chris, once again its been a pleasure doing business!
