Here we have a very nice and attractive Lee Metford Bayonet of the type carried by Canadian and British soldiers in the Boer War.
This is a very practical fighting bayonet as it has a dagger blade and a very comfortable grip to hold.
This is the Mark 1 Type 2 with its two brass pins central to the grip.
This bayonet was manufactured in April of 1897 by Sanderson of Sheffield.
