Bayonets

Bayonets were designed to give the close-quarters combatant a tactical edge with longer reach. Traditionally used on the end of a rifle, there were many designs adopted over the years. From the early, simple plug bayonet (which made it impossible to also fire your gun), to modern representations that no longer pose any hurdle in firing. Size also changed as one-on-one combat became less a part of a battle plan after WWI. From the size of short swords to more manageable combat knives which serve utilitarian purposes, the advent of newer, better firearms made has made them almost obsolete. Almost. Lee Enfields, M1 Garands and AK 47’s along with other famous guns were issued a variant and many are still in use today making them highly sought after collectibles. Although the style of fighting has changed, the function and use of today’s bayonets as combat knives is still effective in the field and look intimidating on parade.

Today the bayonet is rarely used in one-on-one combat thanks to the effectiveness of firearms. The complexity of using a bayonet and low stopping power of a single bayonet thrust make it impractical. In modern combat, it's more efficient to put an enemy down with technology and firearms than with a bayonet. Despite its limitations, the bayonet is still issued by many armies. Additionally, the bayonet is still used for controlling prisoners and as a weapon of self defense and for utilitarian purposes in camp. Some even claim that training with one teaches a level of aggression that is valuable on the battle field.

Current bayonets are often multi-purpose knives such as the US M9 bayonet, which is also an efficient fighting knife or the Soviet AKM bayonet which is also a ground breaking survival knife that can be used as a wire-cutter. Some bayonets can also be used as utility knives, bottle openers or throwing knives. There is also the obvious financial benefit of issuing one multi-purpose bayonet/knife as opposed to multiple knives to confuse and burden today’s soldier.

We feature bayonet replicas, genuine military surplus bayonets, army surplus bayonets and accessories like hard to find scabbards and frogs to accurately carry them.

Review of: Arisaka Type 30 Bayonet with Scabbard

Nice looking bayonet and scabbard made in India. No faux makers marks on this piece.  Deep blue blade, nice wooden grips.  Fits the leather frog perfectly.   Slightly loose fit in the scabbard.  Not inexpensive, but nicely made.

Review of: Kukri Bayonet

I bought one of these about two years ago at the 99 dollar price. This is a bargain price wise and mounted on a barrel is a real show piece. I've had a lot of fun showing it off and sure beats 1000 dollars for an orginal.

Review of: 1907 Bayonet with Hooked Quillion & Sheath

I bought 2 of this model and 2 butcher blade bayonets.  They are solid and well made.  The steel seems of good quality (though I'm not going to test them on a rock wall, but they look and feel as if that's the only way to break them).  This model is not heavy or bulky, I think graceful is a good synonym.  I wanted something that Bruce Willis would've chosen to go back into the basement to save  Ving Rhames with in Pulp Fiction.  Real, not a decoration.

Review of: Long M1 Bayonet with Scabbard

Fit my 1918 manufactured 1903 Springfield perfectly; tight with no alteration (gentle tapping into place or to remove)(the release button worked well for the scabbard and the bayonet mounting lug). I appreciated the all black theme: blade, handle, scabbard. Looks like it belongs. An attractive reproduction. D**n 16 inches is long and definitely impressive. The 1905 version (with blackened blade, not available) might have been closer to technically correct (different scabbard) but I wouldn't want any thing different. The M1 Garand and scabbard version was perfect. Thanks.

Review of: 98 Butcher Blade Bayonet with Scabbard & Frog

I have purchased 3 of these quality bayonets.  They fit my K98 Russian Capture, and my Yugo straight out of the box.  I ordered the last one for my best friend, and he said it fits his K98 RC fine.  These bayonets are large, fearsome, and have  a visible shock value when attached to a Mauser.  At the present deal price, they are a steal.  Get one while they last.

Review of: 98 Butcher Blade Bayonet with Scabbard & Frog

Nine years ago I purchased two M1917 bayonets.  I gave one to my brother and kept the other one.  Mine was a disappointment. It did not fit without quite a bit of work.  This time I was pleased with the 98 bayonet.  At first it was a bit tight, but with oiling  and cleaning it fit well and required no altering.  It is well made and finished.
