    Hi all

    Found this and am curious as to what type of bayonet/dagger/blade it could be

    Total length 60 cm. blade length 46 cm. blade width 4cm. Weight 800 gms. Appears to be in a scabbard Tang seems to still be partly enclosed in what remains of the handle. Blade is not symmetrical but “breaks towards the point. Seem to be an impression of a clasp perhaps on what must be the front. I have pics but can't post yet as I'm a new user

    Contact me and I can email photos

    I have reported to County Museum and National Museum but nothing so far from them

    no pic- I don't think you can post pics until you have a certain number of posts.

    Late to the party I know, but looks like it might be a 1907 pattern bayonet for a Lee-Enfield rifle.
