British 1907 Pattern Bayonet. Perhaps 1915 Dated

Code: 56733


A very nice example of a British made Pattern 1907 Bayonet, officially called the Sword Bayonet, pattern 1907 designed to be used with the Short Magazine Lee Enfield rifle. The Pattern 1907 Bayonet was used by the British and Commonwealth forces throughout both the First and Second World Wars.

Overall condition is very good, the blade approximately 434mm in length with the usual darkening but without damage.

Official marks are stamped onto the Bayonet's ricasso. On British manufactured bayonets as we have here the right side includes an 'X' bend-test mark, a broad arrow government acceptance mark, and two Royal Small Arms Factory appointed inspector's marks. On the left side is Bayonet's official inspection, the maker's name, Wilkinson and the reigning monarch's crown and royal cypher'GR' (George Rex).

The crossguard, spine and pommel retain a good degree of the original blueing, the grips showing only light bruising.

The scabbard is a fine example, the leather without damage and with all stitching intact with both top and bottom fitting in very good condition.
