I used to have an Izhevsk 90 degree years ago. I don't remember if it is packed away or I sold it. I used to have several other odd balls including a straight one - Austrian I think. I'll see if I still have it and post.

Do you know something about Mosin's bayonets with pencil tip like that

used in US Army ?

I didn't find anything at books.

Probably modified here in the US to use on M91 substitute standard guns after WWI. National guard units and lots of other troops used the M91 in that period. Just about the safest thing you can say about Russian bayonets is that they will have a "screw driver tip". I have never seen a native Russian bayonet after the Berdan I (which has a triangular section and a screw driver tip) that didn't follow that rule. This is only true of "spike" bayonets, of course (the 1905 scythe and the erzatz blades of WWII have blades with points).

Here are a couple of bayonets made for the original Russian order from the Chatellerault Weapon Factory in France. The lower numbered piece is a rare 90 degree variation. They tested several different models before they decided on the model that was used through out production.

Super nice!

One thing is missing :): The scabbard made in Chatellerault!
Now that's rare. They never survived!
