Hi, All !
Thought you might like to view this Japanese bayonet I purchased at a local auction about
five years ago. It was tagged "Spanish bayonet" and I suppose they were guessing as to
where it originated. It has a wooden scabbard wrapped with wire and painted green,
which I thought was pretty unique, and upon closer inspection even I knew it was
not Spanish !
It is in mint unissued condition and has only one logo on the fuller-less blade for
National Denki ( National Electric ). These are referred to as "last ditch" weapons
as they were produced toward the final stages of WWII, and several traditional
bayonet features were purposely eliminated to speed production.................
