    The bayonet is a 1907 Pattern SMLE Bayonet, probably taken as a war trophy from some Commonwealth soldier fighting in the pacific by a Japanese soldier; not something you see very often.

    Ha, you'd be lucky to find a regular british issue Ptn 1907 for 70-90 in that condtion, for a captured and marked Japanese one, I'd certainly say it was worth the 130, at least in my opinion.
