Not much going on in the bayonet world here lately, so I thought I would try and get something started. I have several and thought I would start off with one of the most common of the yataghan style blades, the 1866 Chassepot. This one is made by the St. Etienne arsenal in 1872 and is numbers matching.
The yatagahn styled bayonets are one of the coolest designs used by many countries for many years. It is one of those bayonets that everyone wants to pick up and check it out. Lets see what all the rest of you have.
