British WW1 Pattern 1907 bayonet made in 1915 by Sanderson of Sheffield.
The 431mm single-edged blade has a long narrow fuller and rounded spine. The edge was factory sharpened. The blade retains its factory edge and blued ricasso and is in excellent condition.
The ricasso is marked with a crown, the pattern date 1907 and the date of manufacture 10 ’15 below which is stamped Sanderson.
The obverse ricasso bears a bend test stamp, War Department arrow and four Enfield inspection and re-issue stamps along with a date stamp for 1927.
The crosspiece, muzzle ring, pommel and grip scales are in very good condition. The press-stud catch is in perfect working order.
The bayonet is complete with its black leather scabbard with a teardrop rog stud. The scabbard is in very good condition with a small (strong) repair to the leading edge above the chape. 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 WW1 pattern 1907 bayonet.
