Quick Overview

* Required Fields



This Japanese Type 30 bayonet was made by the Matsushita Kinzoku and is one of the last varients of Arisaka bayonet made. The un-fullered blade is blued and is in very good condition although it has minor areas of wear. The quillion is the straight type and is blued as is the pommel. Both guard and pommel have minor wear to the blue. The grips are wood and are secured by two screws. The scabbard is wood and is in excellent condition.

Introduced in 1897 for use with the Type 30 rifle, although no official designation for these bayonets has been found, they are commonly referred to as the Type 30. The Type 30 bayonet had a 394mm polished blade, a crossguard with hooked quillion, contoured wood grips held by screws, and a contoured birdshead pommel. Production of the bayonet remained virtually unchanged until the outbreak of the Second World War, throughout which variations, of which over 100 have been catalogued, were made to the design to facilitate production. The Type 30 bayonet was used on all Japanese rifles and carbines, with the exception of the Type 44 carbine (which utilized a folding bayonet), until the end of the Second World War.
