    Were these always marked on the handle only, or were some also marked on the blade like the normal bayonets?

    Thanks Lance, I never even seen the lower one in the pic and if I did I would have thought that a Bubba got a hold of a arisaka bayonet and butchered it.
    Thank you to both of you Gents for sharing these pic's!!!

    Greetings Phil,

    You are not too far off about the butchering part. The Japanese themselves, “butchered” perfectly good Type 100 Test Type 1 bayonets to make the Type 100 Special Purpose Test Type 1 Bayonets. Technically, ”arsenal modified” would be better than, “butchered”. That’s what makes the special purpose bayos rarer, they were modified from an already rare bayonet to begin with.

    Regards,

    Lance
