The Bayonet M/1889

The Danish Krag-Jørgensen Gevær M/89 bayonets. This post will be a place holder for the range of bayonets used with the M/89 Krag-Jørgensen and here are two examples.

Firstly an example of the earlier German built Bayonet M/1889. This one is marked 91 for 1891 and was built by Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Co, Solingen. This design of bayonet was approved 7th October 1892 and manufactured with the leather grips until around 1892/93, after this time the bayonet was manufactured with wooden grips

I have a feeling the scabbard with this bayonet is for the later wooden gripped versions and is probably a Danish manufactured version, the scabbard is not numbered to particular bayonet so hard to be sure.

 

This is the later pattern Bayonet M/1889 Danish (Copenhagen) built version, this one was manufactured by HVV and is marked 07 for 1907

Dimensions:

Overall length 350,0mm

Blade length 230,0mm

Please note the correct designation for Danish Krag-Jørgensen Gevær M/89 bayonets is always Bayonet M/1889 regardless of grip material.
