German ersatz bayonet fitted with finnish guard. Blade shortened to 10,5 inches and narrowed to fit in a finnish scabbard. (Would fit without narrowing.)
Mortise slot has not been modified, so this does not fit finnish MN rifles.
Standard Arisaka bayonet and scabbard very skilfully shortened, and puukko-type false edge added.
Except for non-shortened guard, this M28 is identical to M28-based M42’s.
Even blade grinding is very neat and professional. M42 prototype or variant? Forgery? Ersatz M39?
Fiskars M28 blade attached to Fiskars M22 tang, brass handle.
Bought this from local seller on Fiskars Antique Show, in Fiskars.
Possibly made from extra parts found in factory?
