This looks like an Imperial 71/84 bajonet, but it isn't. It's a "Pioneer cadet Sidearm".
There's no slot for mounting on a rifle, but oddly, the spring for a bajonet release is present... or should be. This one's missing, and I figure somebody took it to repair an actual bajonet. It's marked with stylized scales I *think* show it was made by Alex Coppel. (Alcoso)

The sawback is quite sharp. It wasn't meant to brutalize enemy - it was theoretically used to cut bridge timbers and such. But it mostly just walked from class to class at pioneer cadet school. You see the same thing without a sawback, it's an Infantry Cadet Sidearm. SW

The blade's fully etched in a military motif.

Next is a Puma dress bajonet with stag scales and infantry troddel. I *think* it's infantry anyway. It was carried by a senior NCO. Puma bajonets with black plastic scales sell for around $125 - stag scales double the price.

i had the swiss sawback , as you note extremely sharp and no , not intended to brutalize [but i fear some were used that way] they were made to brutalize the underbrush and clear a path for the line of fire as well as a bit of housekeeping
