    Hello Guys,
    This is a knife I aquired recently from a friend who is serving in the Danish Army.
    He informs me that it is used by the Swedish SF and as you can see the blade should be familiar to those who know the Swedish Mauser 1896 bayonet.

    They have used the blade of the bayonet and fitted it to a wooden handle and scabbard. the bayonet is all metal and would freeze in the hand ,wood does not. They wear it to the front of the belt and high.
    I have not been able to research this any further so any help appreciated.
    It looks quite a nice knife.

    Regards

    Jim

    Great design, but it looks like a one-off or home made piece. Definitely re-worked
    from a Swedish bayonet.

    Wood not freezing in your hand is an interesting idea, but there is no
    crossguard, or any checkering or ribs to prevent your hand from
    sliding forward onto the blade.

    Member Reibert should see it - he might know what it is.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    That is exactly what I thought Steve, but my friend Lars insists it is not.
    Any other photos of Swedes wearing this would be great.

    Regards

    It's a beauty, in any case, and I'd be quite pleased if I had one as well! They certainly aren't Common!

    Very interesting !

    Never heard ībout such knives ...

    The bladeīs definately an M96 bayonet blade !

    I do not believe, that such knives really issued in the Swedish Army till anybody can show images of such knives in wear, and telling me a designation.

    Swedish military knives

    As far as I know, even the Peltonen Ranger knife, (made in Finland), was in use in swedish Special Forces ...
