REMOVED: RARE Very Late WW2 Arisaka Bayonet

REMOVED FROM SALE:This crudely made late WW2 Japanese bayonet is shown on p. 340 of Ray Labar’s “Bayonets of Japan” as variation LB-241B 2-17, and he rates it as RARE. The blade has only factory sharpening and is covered in many places with hardened grease, which I did not try to remove. The wood scabbard is intact. What makes the piece very unusual is the cross guard and pommel are welded, not pinned, to the blade’s tang, which you can see in some of my pictures. The bayonet is not maker marked and has no serial number, which is correct.
