M1891 Bayonet

To be fixed on the Remington M1891 Carbine

This model of bayonet is considered very scarce. These bayonets were all made in Solingen (Germany) and not in Holland (Netherlands).

I only know bayonets of this that were made by Weyerberg Kirschbaum & Cie, Solingen, Germany. In fact this was the bayonet that laid the base for the M1895 "No.1 NM & KNIL" bayonets.

The M1891 was a very modern bayonet for its time because it was a (relatively short) double edged knife bayonet.

The press stud has a very distinctive teardrop shape. Also the "Solingen" shape of crossguard makes this bayonet easy to identify. The blunted tip of this bayonet is original...they were only to be sharpened during war-time.


The scabbard is made entirely of brown leather, reinforced with copper rivets, with an exposed brass ball finial (see M1895).

If you have such a bayonet and you want to sell it, please let me know!
