The folding bayonet was found to be a poor design. The blade frequently wore loose and it was expensive and time consuming to produce. This led to the manufacture of a fixed blade version, and a number of folding bayonets were converted to fixed blades. This is a very nice fixed version, the release button works and the wooden grips are in good condition only showing minor signs of service wear. Serial number (N73272) 3 and L. FRANHCI is stamped on the side. The handle is 4 “, the blade 7 “and the overall length is 11 “. It comes with its correct 1891/38 scabbard which retains the majority of its paint and its rare leather frog which is in very good order and has a lovely patina. See page 166 of Bayonets and illustrated history by Martin J. Brayley. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 333.
