British WW1 Pattern 1907 bayonet made in 1918 by Sanderson & Newbould.
The 435mm single-edged blade has a long narrow fuller and rounded spine. The edge was factory sharpened. The blade is in excellent condition with a pale patina. The ricasso retains its original blueing and is marked with a partly struck George V crown over the pattern date 1907 and the date of manufacture 1 ’18 (January 1918) below which is stamped Sanderson.
The obverse ricasso bears two bend test stamps, War Department arrow and five Enfield inspection and reissue stamps. There is also a re-issue date stamp for 1925.
The crosspiece, muzzle ring and pommel retain their original blued finish and are in excellent condition. The press-stud catch is in perfect working order. The grip scales are in excellent condition.
The bayonet is complete with its leather scabbard with a teardrop frog stud. The scabbard is in excellent condition. The steel locket and chape retain their original blueing. The stitching is intact and strong and the bayonet sheathes smoothly and is held firmly within the scabbard.
This is an excellent example of a Sanderson made P1907 bayonet.
