The entire bayonet is a one-piece forging, save for the press stud. The wood grip scales are inset into the hilt and secured by flush brass rivets. The metal is in the white, although blued examples are also encountered. The scabbard is black leather with steel locket and chape. The locket incorporates a spring locking device. Scabbards made of brown leather are also encountered.
