    Father picked this up. Blade is 15.75'' long with slightly dented metal sheath. Not sure when it was made. But apparently has ties to WW2. Been in closet for close to 10 years till now. Not sure where he got it.

      Looks to be German Made

      Welcome to our 'Family" site Sandpiper !!

      Definately German made (Solingen), but Germany exported bayonets to many other countries. This bayonet looks alot like the Belgian Model 1888 Long Bayonet, but I don't know if any of those were imported prior to or between wars. Germany did export to South America, and this does look like the Brazilian Model 1934, but I'm not a South American Militaria collector, so I'm out on a limb when I talk about those.

      You are welcome, and a belated welcome to the site. It really does feel like a family here! I'm one of the very odd uncle.

      This also looks like it could be a Japan Type-30 Bayonet for use with the 6.5mm type 38 rifle, the type 1 rifle or the 7.7mm type 99 rifle possibly. If it is then it is from around WW2 era.

      Note the German markings on the ricasso. Also the Type 30 didn't have a ball finial at the end of the quillion.

      This item is the M1908 bayonet, Brazilian Mauser rifle, made by different companies including Weyersberg Kirschbaum & CO. Solingen. The only difference is how the maker put there name on it as it is abreviated and curved on the Brazilian model and not on mine, so yours should be the Brazilian Modell. I have one as well and during my research I noticed this was left as unsolved so I figured I'd add what I could. I'll update this if I find out anymore info!
