P1879 Artillery Sawback Sword Bayonet and Scabbard




The P1879 Artillery sawback sword bayonet is probably one of the most recognizable of British bayonets. More sword than bayonet, it was a true combination tool. The saw function must have been ideal for clearing brush in the field, and whether handled as a sword or fixed as a bayonet, would have been truly daunting for any foe. The Martini Henry Artillery carbine was shorter so blade was designed to give the same reach as a conventional Martini Henry rifle with bayonet fixed.
