British WW1 Pattern 1907 bayonet made in 1918 by J. A. Chapman. Chapman produced 300,000 1907 pattern bayonets. The 432mm single-edged blade has a long narrow fuller and rounded spine. The edge was factory sharpened. The blade is in very good condition with one small patch of shallow pitting in the fuller, mid-way on one side. The ricasso retains its original blueing and is marked with George V crowned royal cypher over the pattern date 1907 and the date of manufacture 6 ’18 below which is stamped the Chapman name. The obverse ricasso bears a bend test stamp, War Department arrow and three Enfield inspection and acceptance stamps. The crosspiece, muzzle ring and pommel retain their original blued finish and are in very good condition. The press-stud catch is in perfect working order. The pommel is stamped with the “sold out of service” inverted arrows. The grip scales are in good condition with some age and use related dings and scuffs. The bayonet is complete with its late war leather scabbard with a round frog stud. The scabbard is in very good condition. The steel locket and chape retain their original blueing with some minor wear. The stitching is intact and strong and the bayonet sheathes smoothly and is held firmly within the scabbard. This is a good example of a Chapman made P1907 bayonet.
