    Found in a box at an estate sale. Came with no info. Wondering how old? What kind of rifle it was for? Where it was made?

    Please help.

    Thank you,

      Most likely it is a WWII Japanese bayonet. There should be markings on the blade just under the hand guard.

      That site should be helpful

      The lost photo shows the markings.

      The sharp curved "C" lower guard was supposedly for parrying a sword, pike, bayonet etc. blade & possibly break it.
