Swiss M1914 Sawback Bayonet for the Schmidt Rubin Rifle and Scabbard.
Swiss M1914 Sawback Bayonet for the Schmidt Rubin Rifle and Scabbard. Bayo 221 - Bayo 221
This is a M1914 Sawback bayonet for the Schmidt Rubin rifle and is probably the last issue sawback bayonet produced by any country. It has an excellent condition polished steel 19" blade, fullered on one side only and with the sawback extending for 13". The ricasso is stamped on one side with the Swiss Cross above "HSE W 1929". The crossguard is stamped with the serial number "45836". The slab wooden grips are in very good condition and secured with two steel rivets. These bayonets are usually found in steel scabbards but occasionally were issued in the earlier steel mounted leather scabbards. This bayonet is in a brown leather steel mounted scabbard which is in excellent condition and with the frog strap still intact. As is usual with Swiss made bayonets, the quality of both the bayonet and scabbard is of the best quality. It would be difficult to find a better combination, particularly in the rarer leather scabbard. (see White & Watts, item 607, pages 266 & 272). The price includes UK delivery. Bayo 221
