Indian 1907 Pattern, Bayonet with Sharpened Tip (False Edge) and Scabbard. Sn 10880:28 - 10880:28
An Indian 1907 Pattern, bayonet with sharpened tip (False Edge) and leather scabbard. As in Australia and Britain, India adopted a modification for sharpening of some No I bayonets (in 1926 the Patt.1907 bayonet nomenclature was changed, in line with Britain). The form of the false edge is different to the British and Australian models, although it is likely that a variety of grinding styles may be encountered in the Indian False Edge. The bayonet has a blackened 17" blade with fullers. The ricasso is stamped with inspection marks and on the other side with "G.R.I. 1907 9 40" (September 1940) and "R.F.I.". The blade is in excellent condition. It has a false edge. The bayonet has a straight 'waisted' crossguard. The slab wood grips are secured with two screw bolts. The pommel has the push button release, which operates smoothly and clearance hole. It is stamped on one side with "134". This bayonet was made in September 1940 at the Ishapore Factory and is one of only 15775 made during this period. (total production for the wartime period was 751149 with the peak of 224442 in 1943/44). The scabbard has a tear drop frog stud and has a metal chape and locket. It is leather and in good condition.
