    Nice bayonet Bill! I feel stupid now that I saw one of these at a flea market, and thought it was fake and passed it up. Oh well. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for showing the nice bayo and photos Bill. I have never seen an actual photo of this one before, just a hokey drawing. It's interesting that the blood groove is the same as it is on the type 30 and 99. I thought the groove would go inside the handle on this shorter one, but I can see it actually does stop before the crossguard.

    Courage is not the lack of fear, it is the ability to take action, no matter the cost.

    Myself as well, I saw one of these without a sheath for sale once and thought it was a fake or a cut down bayonet.... wow.
