This is a new hobby that I picked up recently after my father gave me a bayonet as a surprise gift. I’ve been rather hooked since then. Here you’ll find the gallery for my small but growing collection.
This is my first bayonet, a Turkish Model 1935, in a rather impressive condition.
I believe this is a Czech VZ24 bayonet, which would place in in the WWII time period. It’s not in the greatest condition but it is a rather interesting piece because of the “kill mark” notches in the handle. Here is the history, as it was sent to me:
Picked this up in Slovakia while visiting a small village. It belonged to a partisan and he marked it twice for the 2 kills he had. Came from his family.
This is a Spanish bayonet (I believe from the 1960s) for the CETME rifle. I’m sure this weapon has a history, but what it is, I don’t know, other that this is an issued example, where many that are seen today are new surplus.
This is a rather interesting bayonet, partly for it’s origin, and partly for its great condition. The is a German made bayonet for the Mauser rifle, made by Weyersberg Kirschbaum & Co. with a blade made at the infamous Krupp factory.
German WWII era Dress
This is a fairly standard German dress bayonet from the WWII period, it was made by Weyersberg Kirschbaum & Co. The plating is nearly all worn off, which seems to be fairly common for this model.
