Danish M1889 Bayonet And Scabbard. Bayo - Bayo 78A Danish M1889 bayonet and scabbard. This is the bayonet introduced by the Danes to fit the Krag-Jorgensen rifle. It was introduced in 1889. The blade and hilt are forged in one piece and it has no muzzle ring. Instead it has a long mortise slot which when engaged with the bayonet bar on the rifle, kept the bayonet well supported. There is a simple pivoting release catch on the pommel, the grips are of chequered leather which in 1892 were replaced by wood on all new production models, making this an early model. The blade is marked with the trademark of "WKC" (Kings Head & Knights Helm). There are two serial numbers on the hilt, "27B227" which has a cancellation line through it and "42B454". These respectively mean the 27th Battalion, bayonet No 227 and the 42nd Battalion, bayonet number 454. There is also a serial number of "19301" and a Danish inspection stamp of 91 denoting 1891. The scabbard is steel mounted leather and has a spring mounted retaining clip on the top mount. (see Martin J. Brayley, 'An Illustrated History of Bayonets, pages 57 & 58). A scarce bayonet. The price includes UK delivery. Bayo 78.
