    There is a number stamped on the cross guard and a GR stamp on the pommel.

    The handle pommel and crossguard appear to be from an 1888 pattern Lee Metford bayonet.

    I would suggest a re worked Khukri

    The handle is that of the 1888 Lee Metford rifle bayonet. I will have to research a little more to see if they were made in this configuration. I'm sure one of the more knowledgeable gents will be along soon to give you more info.
    I like it!!!

    The blade appears to be one piece running into handle.

    That would be normal for any blade that would fit this handle . Are there any marks on the blade itself.

    No stamps on blade

    That is, indeed, a "Strange" one! A Khukri bayonet! lol Looks period done and well made, to boot. I Like it!

    (I could imagine this on the end of a rifle!)
