    Default Is this is French 1892 Bayont?

    Hi,

    I ran into an old gentleman who recieved this from his father and I said I would try to help. The family story is that his German father brought this back from France after WWI.

    I *think* it's an 1892, but the quillon and hilt don't seem to match. Can any of you experts help?

    Thanks very much.Click image for larger version.

    WOuld you have any idea of manufacture date? I'm seeing 1935-1945. Is that about right, even with the curved cross guard?

    I'm trying my best to look this up on my own, but not having much luck.

    Thanks again,

    Most likely around that area, but maybe even earlier. I'm not really sure..

    Hello The bayonet was made by Koishikawa arsenal in Tokyo, probably early postwar WW1.
