    Hi,
    your bayonet is a Swiss made Schmidt-Rubin Model 1914
    Pioneer / Engineer sawback bayonet, also know as the 1911
    model. Usualy stamped Elserner Schwyz, and a number along the quillion, nice bayonet if you straighten the quillion and give it a good clean it would look great. Hope this helps.
    dave.
