M1914 Pioneer Sawback Bayonet - sn 31446
Swiss model 1914 sawback bayonet, manufactured by Waffenfabrik Neuhausen. Includes leather scabbard and leather frog.
Blade has light pitting at the tip. Both grips have a heavy gouge. Light pitting on the pommel. Bayonet was reissued as the previous serial number on the guard was mostly ground off and stamped with a new serial number.
Leather scabbard has light gouging. Leather frog was made by B. Leuthard of Eschenbach (St. Gallen) in 1949.
The 1914 Sawback Bayonet was not a widely issued bayonet, and was only issued to select troops. The seral number indicates that it was issued with a K11 Carbine produced in 1914.
