British 1856/58 Sword Bayonets were produced for Enfield .577 rifles by English manufacturer's and the German Solingen trade. This is a nice example of the British Sword bayonet, Pattern 1856/58, with Yataghan type blade (see page 114 plate B151 of Skennerton’s book British & Commonwealth Bayonets). The clean steel blade is undamaged. The blade is 23" long (28 1/2" overall) and has a curving Yataghan form which is fullered. The ricasso has a partially readable mark ’Reeves’ and what appears to be 12/73 date (December 1873). The reverse has WD inspection marks. The back of the blade is marked 'R' 'W' and with 'crown BR4' inspection mark. The edge of the blade near to the hilt is stamped 'crown 77'. It has a steel cross guard and muzzle ring. Its leather 2-piece grip is stamped with a chequered pattern. The grips are undamaged. The steel grip strap is stamped with what appears to be 'JPRB' and with inspection mark 'crown BR42'. The steel mounted leather scabbard's stitching and leather are undamaged. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 11213:4
