    austro-hungarian (OEWG - made in austria) but scabard ??? mostly are made of metal.


    Bayonets of Austria

    Knife bayonet for use on the 8 mm. M1895 Mannlicher rifle, which was produced in great quantities prior to and during the First World War.

    Made at Oesterreichsche Waffenfabrik-Gesellschaft (Austrian State Weapons Manufacturing Company) in Steyr. This firm is still in business today, known simply as, Steyr.

    The M1895 bayonet was the first knife bayonet to feature an inverted blade profile, where cutting edge faces upward when fixed.

    MMMMM Perhaps then the scabbard isn't original to the bayonet but they fit well & have been together a long time. Cheers Paul

    I agree that it is an Austrian 1895 bayonet. The scabbard looks like it is probably for an English Pattern 1888 bayonet.

    the scabbard looks alot like a F~S Fighting knife scabbard in construction. metal tip stapled to a leather scabbard, seam in the back.

    From top to bottom the scabbard is 295mm, to long imo for a fighting knife which i imagine would be a bit shorter. cheers Paul
