    So what do you think about this gents? Could it be this is an indonesian made mannlicher as a trench knife? Or someone convert the original bayonet into trench knife?
    Thank you.

    Hello Feldgrau,

    Your bayonet looks like a home produced fighting knife, taking it's inspiration from a KNIL bayonet. The handguard does not add up. The hole in it is to small to fit the barrel.

    Have a look at this site: Overview

    Hope you find an explanation. Possibly non finished bayo made by TNI supporters in 45-50 era?

    Cheers,
    Emile

    Ah thank you for the explanation sir. That's really possible. Crude made and cloned from the original bayo. Thank you.

    Anyway i found similar knife sell in here too

    I guess for this knife it doesn't have any finger groove and have a different style of handguard too.
