Early 1800's, Baker, 2nd Pattern Sword Bayonet By Reeves & Co. Sn 7094 - 7094

The Baker sword bayonet with curved knuckle bow was introduced in 1805. This bayonet along with it's rifle became synonymous with contemporary drawings and sculptures of Riflemen at that time. (See page 65 of British & Commonwealth Bayonets By Skennerton). Baker was patronised by the Prince of Wales which certainly had a bearing on the success and acceptance of his rifles and popularity of this distinctive Bayonet. This is an all original 2nd Pattern Baker Sword bayonet. It's 22 1/2 " long, straight blade is a broad 1 1/4 " with a single edge and broad back ( 27" overall). The blade has even patina throughout and the back of the blade is crisply stamped by the manufacturer 'Reeves' which is Reeves & Co. It has a heavy ribbed brass handle and full curved knuckle bow with rounded langet. The mortice slot and fixing mechanism with flat spring and large stud button are present and work perfectly. The langet is crisply etched '16' and 'BO' with motif beneath. The blade sit's secuely within the grip but there is slight movement of the hand guard / knuckle bow. As is usual with the majority of these bayonets it is without it's scabbard. Price for this rare, nicely marked item includes UK delivery. Sn 7094.
