This is a knife bayonet manufactured from the period of 1896 to about 1912. They were in service until after WWII. They are well made and set the pattern for knife bayonets - designed in functionality - to the present day. All metal, blued, knurled grip; the hollow cylindrical grip slides over the cleaning rod and the locking mechanism attaches to a lug on the front barrel-band. Double-edged, high-quality blade.

Designed to fit the 1896 Swedish Mauser Rifle.

All-metal "blued" scabbard, with ball finial on tip.
