Gents,

just stumbled into an interesting website - albeit in German language - with tons of pictorial evidence of bayonets from around the world. This was once a large collection owned by Mr. Hugo Schürer. Regrettably. after he passed away in 2012, this collection went into an auction last year. So this website is the last chance to get at least some pictorial impression...

Here the link:

Interesting website! Thank you for posting this. Most internet browsers now a days can translate the pages for you, sometimes not very well, but enough to give you the idea of what they are trying to say. Again, thank you for the link!

You're welcome. I'm not sure whether this translations via browser also work with the PDF pages with the detailed descriptions of the bayonets, but much is sort of self-explaining there...

Several of the bayonets in the first photo are featured here: http://usmilitaryknives.com/porters_page_6.htm
The bottom bayonet in the photo is a US T2 bayonet from 1944. They were looking for a cheaper and quicker way to make bayonets for the M1 Garand. The hilt is laminated steel.
The 1905 type bayonet is one of three samples submitted by the Bakelite Corporation to the US Navy Ordnance Board in 1942 for consideration and evaluation.

B Japanese Type 100 SMG bayonet
C French MAS-1928 experimental rifle bayonet serial number 1
D Yugoslavian Kindjahl bayonet
E French MAT49 SMG experimental bayonet
F Japanese 3/4 size training bayonet
