The M1914 Schmidt-Rubin sawback bayonet was highly likely the last sawback bayonet to be produced by any country (see page 272 No 607 in The Bayonet Book by Watts & White). The M1914 bayonet has a blade the same length as the M1906 bayonet and is likewise fullered on one side only, but the sawback portion of the blade is longer. It has wooden grips secured by rivets which are in excellent condition and a spatulate type crossguard. The spring catch works as it should and the pommel is unmarked. The blade is in excellent condition and is clearly marked to one side with the manufacturers name ‘ELSENER SCHWYZ’. The leather scabbard has a nice patina and is un-damaged, as is the metalwork. A leather belt attachment is connected to the scabbard. The price for this very clean M1914 Sawback and scabbard includes UK delivery. 21127.
