    Hi guy`s , just thought i`d show this example from my collection , it`s a Canadian Ross mark 11 bayonet produced by the Ross Rifle Co. Quebec . The mark 11 was introduced in 1912 , but the blade was modified during WW1 in 1915 from it`s original more rounded end to a much more aggressive point , leaving a very unusual profile . The scabbard is all brown leather with an internal chape . These bayonets were manufactured to match the Ross Rifle , and although these were fine weapons , it was found that they did not stand up to the rigours of trench warfare , and , in 1916 , Canadian troops on active service in Europe were re-armed with the SMLE and 1907 bayonet . this bayonet feels great in hand and i like it`s design very much .

    Looks like a really good quality product, typical for the era. I agree, it is a great looking item.
