I have seen quite a few of these on here, but I just thought I would throw mine in. This is another item my father brought back from WW II. As you can see, it is in rather good condition, needs a little surface work.
Thank you for looking
enjoy

    I am fairly sure it is a Krag bayonet!

    Yes it is for the Krag rifle, this particular bayonet manufactured in 1909. The rifle was obsolete by WWII, but I've seen cut down Krag bayonets and told they were used as combat knives in WWII.

    My favorite Krag rifle connection to WWII, however, is the one you can sometimes spot SGT Schultz holding in old Hogans Heroes TV shows :)

    Thanks Scott. I'd blame my fat fingers except the 2 & 9 are at opposite ends of the keyboard.
