    Default German/Turkish bayonet

    I have a bayonet that is possibly German, possibly Turkish. It has "AS.FA" on the hilt, and the serial "33855" on the crossguard. It has a few other markings, one on the bottom of the blade that is very faded. I don't know much else about it other than what I can see.

    It is Turkish. All of these modified bayo's are classified as models of 1935. This one is cut down from a Turkish model 1887 or 1890.
