Austrian Steyr-Mannlicher M95 Bayonet

Flag_of_AustriaThis Austrian bayonet was originally made to fit the M1895 Steyr-Mannlicher infantry rifle. I am not a bayonet guy by any ways or means although I have a handful. I got it because it fits the MP34ö submachinegun that I own. The MP34ö was issued to Austrian forces and made its way in Wehrmacht use after the Anschluss. Most of the production was sold in a Portuguese contract and those MP’s were issued with a Simson & Co Söhn MP34 bayonet. The examples that stayed in Austrian service were fitted with an M95 bayonet like this one.

Arisaka Type-30 Bayonet

Flag_of_Japan.svgThis is the Type-30 bayonet, designed to be used on the Type-38 and 99 rifles. In this case it is a late war version made from flat steel and unsharpened. The earlier examples of this bayonet are far better made, with blood gutters and a polished finish. The frog is here.
