    Nice find, is there a scabbard?

    No scabbard or buffer pad. Most likely just cut down and tucked inside a boot.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Ever try fencing inside a phone booth? Swords were useless in the trenches, and if your bayonet was fixed and you ended up face to face with the enemy then having one of these became very useful. I have seen 100's of these all cut down to serve a more useful wartime purpose. No shame in my mind, more like a sign of the times.
