I have never collected Portogese bayonets before, but these were in a little collection I resently bought. If I have figured it out right the long one is a Kropatschek Model 1886 sword bayonet, and the short one is a M1904 mauserbayonet. Here are the Pictures:

Looks like spanish M43 should be looked for stamping, or its a M36 made by germans for export to Spain, anyway the scabbard is not portugal or german, more real of spain M43.b.r.Andy

Thanks to Dennis Ottobre we know the Portuguese 1886 Kropatschek yathagan comes in three muzzlering diameters - 15,5 - 16,0 - 16,5 mm

Then I have one with a muzzlering of 17,4 mm but it's probably made for the Guedes 1885

Don't know what Dennis said, but I have examples of the Guedes (ZAR) and all of the Portuguese Kropatscheks. The Guedes and Krop. rifles have a MRD of 16mm, whilst the carbine is 16.5mm.
Incidentally, the carbine bayonet was purchase from Dennis after a search of many years, as it is nice to have the appropriate bayonet and sling for the respective firearms.

I'm thinking that painterjohn's bayonet may be Chinese, for use with their clone of the Standard-Modell.
