    Default TYPE 30 Japanese Bayonet

    Greetings,

    The bayonet you have posted is a blade cut-down/guard cut-down Type 30 Japanese Bayonet made at the Tokyo/Kokura Arsenal. These modifications were made in order to convert the blade into a more functional knife, whether for fighting or peeling potatoes is anyone's guess. This modification was likely not done by the Japanese, but whomever possessed the bayonet after it passed from Japanese hands (i.e. American, Soviet, Chinese, etc.).

    Best,

    V/r Lance

    Hmmm

    Looks like it could be a WW1 German ersatz bayonet. Essentially a bayonet made later in the war as they wanted to speed up production and conserve certain materials for the war effort. I could be off though, hopefully someone else will chime in soon.
