    Hi all

    Here's the latest purchases. An un-issued swiss M57 for AU$65 and a custom made repro of a Japanese Tanto for AU$80. Probably payed a little too much for both but I liked them.

    Whilst I don't own one myself I've always liked the look of the Swiss M57 bayonet. I find it strange that such a modern looking bayonet was still issued with such an old fashioned leather frog.

    I was referring to the frog which attaches the scabbard to a belt

    The leather frog is the same as the previous Schmidt Rubin rifle pattern bayo frog-the Stg 57 bayo is a very well made piece of quality steel but it's more meant for parade use than the field-the following model is a vicious bastard of a fighting weapon in comparison-have one around somewhere, will try to dig it out.

    Yes, the sheath of the M1957 fits to the frog of the M90 !

    Thatīs wrong !

    The M1957 bayonet was a real "combat" -bayonet, not a "parade" -bayo !

    From an army that hasn't fought a war since the mid 19th century-a very bright polished steel blade screams 'parade' not keeping a low profile in the forest...
