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


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.
