    The bayonet looks like it is for a 1891 Carcano. There should be a date on the back of the scabbard.I forgot the name for the Philippine made blade. Rich A. in Pa.

    Aren't the Philippine knives like that called a bolo? It's not the same type of shape as a US bolo knife, but I'm pretty sure that's what it is for those Philippine ones.

    I would agree (although we really can't see the whole blade that well). If I remember, they are an everyday working knife/blade that came different sizes and shapes

    @Redblurr: It looks like someone chromed the Carcano bayonet. Not sure however, if there were official chromed parade versions of this or this was done by a Vet/someone else. Others may know
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated
