    Default WW1 bayonet??Need help w/ ID

    Hello. I am wondering what I have here. It looks a lot like a French Chassepot bayonet, but the writing does not look french, nor is there a date. The marks above the etching are actually part of the writing. I would appreciate any feedback.
    Thanks,
    Geoff

    Chinese fake ?

    I have seen similar for sale on eBay with the same sort of nonsense writing on the back of the blade.

    The quality of the metalwork also looks a bit suspect to me.

    they are making lots of fakes these days, Ive seen a few at swap meets, a guy had a fake WWII Japanese type 30 bayonet, when I picked it up I could feel the difference, it felt lighter and lower quality than a real one and also had fake aging & fake rust
