Item Description

Original Item. Only One available. This is quite rare, and is a very nice example of a Danish Model 1889/93 Bayonet, intended for use on the Krag–Jørgensen Gevær M/1889 Rifle. The original Model 1889 bayonet featured a checkered leather grip but was improved in 1893 with this version having a wood grips secured by brass rivets. The bayonet is 13 3/4 inches overall, with a 9 inches long single edged fullered blade. The design is somewhat interesting, with a a triangular lever on the pommel of the bayonet moving the bayonet lock.

This very nice example is marked on the ricasso with HÆRENS / TØJHUS, for manufacture at the "Army Arsenal" in Copenhagen. The pommel is marked CROWN / 12, probably for manufacture or acceptance in 1912. Underneath this is serial number of 85643, which should match the rifle it was first issued to. There are other markings on the other side, probably regiment numbers.

The bayonet and matching scabbard are in very good used condition, without any major issues or defects. The blade is nice, with light sharpening and no major nicks or dents, and the grips are nicely broken in. The scabbard has solid leather, and locks correctly onto the crossguard of the bayonet.

A very nice example of a rare bayonet, ready to display!
