Category Archives: Swedish Bayonet

The shortest Swedish bayonet is the m/1896. It is the later version (after 1905 when the design changed from a flat locking stud to a conical locking stud).This is one of my favorite Bayonets
Hilt form: tubular, exterior surface knurled for grip. The open “pommel” end has a narrow reinforce the back of which is grooved. Projecting from the underside of the “pommel’s” end is an unusual flared bell-like spring catch which has a band of knurling for grip. The catch is angled towards the blade and operates the locking mechanism at base of “pommel”. To remove bayonet from rifle the spring catch is pulled outwards. Crossguard form: straight, tapering lower guard with vestigial backswept finial. Upper guard formed into full muzzle ring. Blade form: single-edged, swelling slightly towards spear point, with very narrow central fullers. Fuller length approximately 160 mm, width 3 mm, stops curve-pointed. Extremely narrow flat back to blade. Hilt finish: originally blued, now worn. Blade finish : bright steel.
