~ Scabbarded 1840 Brunswick Bayonet ~
Here we have one of the defining sword bayonets of the British armed forces, the Brunswick bayonet that emerged in the early to mid 19th century.
It is a long double edged fullered blade with a brass hilt and crossguard.
The blade is a leaf blade, its profile tapering before widening just before the tip.
Unfortunately this bayonet has lost all of its markings presumably in polishing.
This bayonet does come with its scabbard, a rarity in itself.
The bayonet is marked with the crowned head, similar to the one on display at the National Army Museum.
~ Dimensions ~
The blade is 21 ¾ inches (55.5cm) long.
The crossguard is 4 inches (10 cm) across.
The bayonet is 26 inches (66 cm) long.
The bayonet weighs 1.2 Kg.
~ Condition ~
The bayonet is in good condition with a firm construction and a fully functional mechanism.
This bayonet shows no markings aside from very faint traces on the ricasso and the bottom of the grip.
~ Postage ~
UK postage is £15, international at cost and it can be viewed in our shop.
