The Italian model 1891 bayonet was made for the 1891 6.5mm Mannlicher-Carcano rifle and was used by Italian forces in both WW1 and WW2.
The 298mm single-edged blade has a deep fuller below a flat spine and terminates in a spear point. The blade is clean and in good condition with speckles of very shallow pitting. The blade is without makers’ details which is not uncommon with this model.
The blackened steel crosspiece has a ball finial and is stamped with the serial number of the rifle with which it was issued. The front of the crosspiece is stamped with the letters PS.
The wooden grip scales are in good condition with use related dings and marks. The blackened steel pommel is in good condition and the press-stud mechanism is in good working order.
The bayonet is complete with its fluted leather scabbard with brass locket and chape. The scabbard is in very good condition. The bayonet sheathes and draws smoothly and is held firmly within the scabbard.
This is a good example of a Model 1891 Italian Mannlicher-Carcano rifle bayonet.
