Australian issued, blued 1907 pattern bayonet made by the Wilkinson Sword company and in an Australian, Lithgow made No.1 Mk II scabbard marked to the 3rd Military District.
The 435mm, single edged blade has a long narrow fuller and rounded spine. The edge was factory sharpened. The blade retains its original blued finish and is in very good condition. The ricasso is marked the crowned cypher of George V, the pattern date 1907 and the production year, 1918, below which is stamped “Wilkinson.”
The obverse ricasso bears a bend test stamp and a War Department arrow as well as three Enfield inspection stamp.
The crosspiece, muzzle ring and pommel retain their original blued finish. The crosspiece is stamped with the serial number KM00898. The grip scales are in good condition and are held firmly in place by two original screws. The front of the right-hand scale is stamped with the letter H. The push button locking mechanism is in good condition and works well.
The bayonet is complete with a scarce Australian No.1 Mk II brown leather scabbard with a small round frog stud and figured locket and chape. The scabbard is in very good condition. The steel locket and chape retain their original finish and the lip of the locket is stamped 3MD 12263. Victoria is Australia’s 3rd Military District.
This is a better than average example of the iconic 1907 pattern Enfield bayonet that was issued to Australian troops.
