An excellent very rare navy knife bayonet for use on the 8 mm. Mauser M1943 Short Rifle.
This specific bayonet was fully parkarized including its scabbard. Also it had received plastic grips. This was part of the refurbished program so the bayonet could be used in the navy.
These bayonets were produced at Fábrica de armas de Toledo (Toledo Arms Factory).
Bayonet is numbered 2115H and scabbard 2308H. On the underside of the cross-guard it has a number stamp "40"
The cross-guard has the letter "U" marked
Blade length 25cm
Overall length 37cm
Designed as a replacement for the M1907 Artillery Bolo, the Machete Bayoneta Modelo 1941, retains the M1907 Artillery Bolo's blade profile and heavy crosspiece for cutting vegetation. Short bolo knives such as this bayonet were horribly inefficient cutting implements and were universally hated by those who had to use them.
