Original Belgian Tersen M-1867 Sword Bayonet with Scabbard for the Brazilian Comblain Rifle
Original Item: Only One Available. These are exceptionally rare until a few were surplused from Brazil in 1977, stuck in amongst a quantity of Mauser 1908 Mauser bayonets. The Comblain Rifle was based on a rolling block system, but was too late for much in the way of European Military contracts. However some emerging Colonial countries, in this case, BRAZIL, were pleased for whatever they could find, as Europe was quite war torn, with the Prussian/Danish war followed by the Franco/Prussian war.
The design is much along the lines of an M.1866 Chassepot saber bayonet, with a 22 1/2 inch yataghan blade mounted in a ribbed brass hilt using a COIL SPRING to tension the bayonet catch. Overall length is about 27 inches. It has a nicely curved quillon on the cross guard, with a ball on the end.
The bayonet is accompanied by its brass mounted leather scabbard, the bottom mount now absent. The stitching is also somewhat pulled in areas, and the staple on the throat is missing, so it can be removed from the scabbard.
