Italian bayonets is not common in my part of the world, but some come out from old collection from time to time. Traded away the non foldable M38 on the pictures, but the rest of my tiny italian collection is still intact. Hope you like it! Best Regards Arvid

Hello Trajan! The only markings I find on the bayonet is RB4393. Is this good or bad? Regards Arvid
All depends on the maker! Some makers were using two letter prefixes before and during WW1. If the maker's mark is on the ricasso and not on the other side of the crossguard, then I think (I am no expert though!) this will pretty certainly be pre-WW2.

I personally believe the WW2 production is marked on guard or other place but are visible, this is most real WW1 production overhauled so that the old stamps were removed by refinish and reblueing. b.r.Andy
