    I have a feeling that these are fantasy items.

    K133 No 9 Bladed Military Knife - 07-Knives

    Quite possibly illegal in the UK if it is classed as a knuckle duster knife.

    Regards

    I think it's South African, and it was meant as a combat knife. I'll have to dig out my books now.

    OK, found the book, Graham Preist, The Spirit of The Pike. British Socket Bayonets of the Twentieth Century pp. 335-336. Was made in SA, but not listed in the 1975 SA small Arms list which showed the bayonets, may have been manufactured for police or irregular troops. The No. 9 or No.4 bayo could be used. Handle was knurled and made of aluminum. Had the same socket adaptor as the entrenching tool. Was marked with Broad Arrow and SE /|\SE together like that

    I am fairly certain these are a fake-fantasy item. I believe they were sold by World wide Arms. Regards, Clive.
