~ A British Pattern 1856/58 Enfield Sword Bayonet ~


This rare pattern 1856/58 British sword bayonet was made for the Model 1853, .577 calibre Enfield (2-band) rifled infantry short-musket.

These bayonets were both issued to British units and exported in large numbers to both the Union and Confederate armies during the American Civil War.

This bayonet is a typical export example, as it does not bear British military issue or War Department ownership stamps.

The 577mm yataghan blade has a flat spine and broad single fuller on both sides. The recurved blade is double-edged for the last 120mm. The blade was service sharpened and retains its fighting edge.

~ Dimensions ~

The blade is 22 inches (56 cm) long and the overall length of the piece is 27 ½ inches (70 cm).
It weigh 800 grams.

~ Condition ~

The blade developed a nice patina and remains free of damage.

The grip has some combat usage but its overall condition is fine. Please see the pictures.

~ Postage ~

UK postage is £18, international at cost and it can be viewed in our shop.
