British M1907 No. 1 Mk. 1 Bayonet


Out of stock


The British M1907 Bayonet was the main rifle bayonet in use during WWI and remained in
use well into WWII. In 1926 it was renamed the No. 1 Mk, 1 bayonet. Several
modifications were made during its period of use. This example features the long 17″
blade with rounded spine and deep 12 ½” single fuller preferred during WWI, but is dated
“12 ‘41″ (December, 1941). Many of those used during WWII had their blade shortened
for easier use in close quarters. Two-piece walnut slab grip fastened by two screws; birds
head pommel featuring the clean out hole introduced in 1916. This was added because
the mounting slot often became clogged with dirt, preventing the bayonet from mounting
on a rifle. The hole facilitated easier cleaning of the slot. Short fklat guard with hole to fit
over the rifle muzzle. Blade marked on one side “MA/1907/1/12 ‘41″ and “2XMA” with two
broad arrow stamps on the other. Pommel stamped with “B” over the serial number
“94926″. Overall length 21 3/4″.
