ON HOLD# New Listing 17/11/15 # WW1 / WW2 JUNGLE BRITISH BAYONET BOWIE BLADE TRENCH KNIFE CONVERSION WITH ORIGINAL SHEATH AND WW2 FROG.
Overall okay condition.
This is an original British P13 bayonet conversion to a trench knife.The bayonet guard has been cut down and reshaped to a knife guard, the long cm blade has been reshaped to a bowie blade, and the original sheath shortened to fit the bowie blade. Although the item retains its bayonet fittings so could still be attached to a rifle.
Would say that this is a WW1 item that has been reused in WW2, and from the overall surface rusting to hilt and sheath and so on...typical of an item used in the WW2 jungles of Burma.
British P-13 Bayonets were made by Remington under contract for England during WWI. This bayonet comes with original wood grips and leather scabbard.
The blade is marked: 1913 2 17 REMINGTON for Pattern 1913 manufactured February 1917 by Remington with the other side British proof marks.
Has all the appearance of a "Been There" item with surface rust to hilt and metal fittings on the sheath with odd wear to front of frog...knife sheath and frog greased overall ... rather typical of an item used jungle.
An interesting collectors item and totally original and unusually complete WW1 / WW2 bayonet trench knife conversion.
You must be at least 18 years of age to buy this item.
