This knife i was told that was used by the germans on their rifles in the WWI. the blade actually isnt that broad but its the canon that made it so . Any Pakgunners would like to share anything about it .

a bayonet for sure. i searched for WWI german bayonets but couldn't match it to any because of the angled photograph. this one apparently has a straight hand-guard but most of those showing up in the search had curved ones. another pic showing the full bayonet from the side will help in identification.

If it's a genuine First world war German bayonet it's probably meant to fit on a Gewehr 98. The Germans developed many different types of bayonet during the first world war. has this one been restored because from the pictures it seems like the hilt is new and the metal parts have been chrome or nickle plated.

I have four of these which look exactly like yours.
These are not German WW1 Bayonets but these are British 1907 pattern Bayonets intended for the SMLE Rifle. Google "1907 pattern bayonet" and you will find info on these.

Nice bayonet collection. Useful for CQB when soldiers ran out of ammo... in the old days of course.
For modern times, we have this:

I saw a few in the craft market of F-6 in Islmabad.
very nice indeed. I think the last tray has been cleaned or is it the angle of the shot.

i think bayonet has been in scene for long and we can also find it there in these modern days.
anaglyphical: very nice collection, i have one bayonet thats of AK47.

I think the last tray looks cleaner due to the angle of the shot, the tray is clean in all the shots :P

I meant the blades look cleaner in the last tray. Anyhow i also think it could be the angle of the shot.

The bayonet seems to be manufactured by Enfield for 3 knot 3 rifles, restored and nickled . I have seen local industry at Wazirabad manufacturing same stuff for export last month.

The German soldiers not only used them to fight face to face but also to cut wires to clear barbed hurdles.
