This is a reproduction SMLE No. 1, Mk III early style bayonet with scabbard. Originals are scarce; early in WWI quillions were officially removed. The blade, which includes British markings, is made from high carbon steel properly tempered for holding a razor edge. All metal has been deeply blued and the wood grips have a rubbed oil appearance. The sheath is made with a leather body and sewn seam up the back with a lozenge style frog. The top and tip are made from metal with a matte black finish. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Please note:
Issues with a replica bayonet not fitting the rifle is not uncommon and sometimes revisions must be made. This is due to the manufacturing of both the original rifle as well as the replica bayonet because they were not made by the same manufacturer.
