M1918 Bayonet - sn 232322
Model 1918 Bayonet, manufactured by Elsener Schwyz. Includes scabbard.
Light discoloration on the pommel and crossguard. Scabbard has light finish wear.
These bayonets were issued with the K11 and K31 Carbines.
The serial number indicates that this bayonet would have been issued with a K31 Carbine produced in 1954. The ricasso should read "Elsener Schwyz Victoria" instead of just "Elsener Schwyz", but it is possible this bayonet was produced prior to the 1950s and remained in inventory until it was issued with a K31 in 1954.
