Iconic WW1 1907 pattern bayonet made by the Wilkinson Sword company in February 1918 and supplied to the Australian Military. The bayonet is stamped with the Australian government ownership mark and is complete with a Mangrovite scabbard.
The 432mm single-edged, blackened blade has a long narrow fuller and rounded spine. The blade is in excellent condition and retains its sharp factory edge. The ricasso is marked the Crowned cypher of King George V and the pattern date 1907 below which is stamped 2 ’18 and the Wilkinson name.
The obverse ricasso bears the War Department arrow, a bend test stamp and three inspection stamps.
The crosspiece, muzzle ring and pommel retain their blueing and the crosspiece bears a partially struck Australian government stamp. The pommel is stamped with the issue number 115 and the obvers bears a clear Australian ownership mark. The grip scales are in good condition and are held firmly in place by two original screws. Both scales are faintly stamped “Slaz.” The push button locking mechanism is in good condition and works well.
The bayonet is complete with an Australian made WW2 issue No.1 Mk II leather scabbard with a large round frog stud. The scabbard is in very good condition. The leather is stamped “Mangrovite’42.” The steel locket and chape retain their original blackened finish. The locket and chape bear an OA stamp for the Orange small arms factory.
This is an excellent example of the iconic 1907 pattern Enfield bayonet that was provided to Australia during WW2.
