My neighbor and I were talking recently. Common interest in firearms, his is hunting(he did military) while mine is military reenacting. Anyway, he throws out there that he has a bayonet he got at a yard sale years ago in a far away state. He shows it to me and it has a wood scabbard and I'm thinking maybe its..... It did fit my Type 38 Arisaka(as you probably could've guessed).
We live semi rural so handing a rifle with a bayonet over our fence wasn't an issue(no one injured either.) We're both out of wifi range but thumbnail rifle is
in service 1905 and about 2 million made, then 7.7mm made at same time complicating supply. I did hear once that the bayonet is more rare than the rifle, this true? Or is it true for all Japanese WW2 rifles.
Where can I look for possible value...
