IS A JAPANESE BAYONET FOR A TYPE 38 ARISAKA. IT IS IN GREAT CONDITION FOR ITS AGE. I WOULD SAY AT LEAST 95 PERCENT OF ITS ORIGINAL FINISH IS NOT ONLY INTACT BUT LOOKING GOOD. WOOD HAS A NICE SHEEN TO IT STILL AND JUST SHOWS THE WEAR YOU WOULD EXPECT OF A MILITARY ITEM OF THIS AGE AND TYPE. FACTORY MARKINGS ARE CLEAR AND CRISP. THE RELEASE PUSHBUTTON FOR THE RIFLE LUG WORKS TIGHT AND SMOOTH WITH NO PLAY. THE LUG CHANNEL ON THE BAYONET IS UNWORN AND HAS NO ROUNDING OUT FROM BAYONET BEING ATTACHED ON AND OFF RIFLE. T IS A SMALL NICK IN BLADE THAT IS EXTREMELY HARD TO SEE. I POINTED IT OUT TO A BUDDY AND HE STILL HAD TO LOOK TWICE. BUT ITS T AND I DO NOT HIDE ANYTHING FROM BUYERS. I WOULD THINK THAT THIS BAYONET MIGHT HAVE BEEN OBTAINED FROM JAPAN DURING OCCUPATION. TOO GOOD OF SHAPE TO HAVE SPENT TIME IN ACTUAL COMBAT FOR ANY NUMBER OF YEARS.
