    Greetings Michael,

    I wholeheartedly agree with the other membersí comments, this is a very neat/cool customized bayonet. As to the scabbard, I thought it looked a tad familiar. It appears to be a slightly cut down (at the mouth) version of one of these Yugo Bayonets. Since no one else mentioned the similarities in their commentary I thought Iíd share that with you. The pictures came from this thread Yugoslavian 1924/40 Kindjahl Bayonet recently acquired. Need info. Unfortunately, the pictured example is missing its scabbard's ring, but if you search the internet with the linked threadís bayonet designation, you will fine others with their scabbards' rings in place. Of course it might not be the same scabbard, but it possesses very interesting similarities and that's why I thought it was worth sharing.

    Hi Lance, Thank you for your opinions and photographs. I must agree with you, the similarities are so noticeable that they are imposible to dismiss. I am inclined to wonder if the bayonet was cut down to fit the scabbard or was the scabbard in any way modified to take the bayonet? In any event I think you are right!!!

    Regards Michael R

    PS For those with either immenent or recently past birthdays, many happy returns and congratulations!!!!!!! Whilst I would have loved to give the item to a birthday boy, as there is more than one, it would be unfair to select only one so I will hang onto it for just now!!! Happy Birthday!!! MR

    The knife in Post #13 looks like they made it into a Kindjal. Nicely done.

    It is known among collectors as a model 1924 kindjahl bayonet. They are very, very, hard to come by.

    The bayonet from the OP is a beautiful piece of handiwork!
