the blade is 8'' and it's a Wilkinson, can not read the date. not that rare- just not cheap. any thoughts on the green paint?

Don't worry about the paint.
Probably had a drum left in the warehouse and they considered it good rust protection.
Kinda like all that grey painted belgian hardware.

the green paint is actually a product of 'use' in the malaysian area and such - many of the no5s have it as well , not a negative in my book as its part of their service ,

my WSC was a bit rough and yet that is part of it too , these were issued arms - i like the ones that look like they 'been there and done that' , its part of their character , post some photos please ,


my photos are old but taken after i culled my collection , my poole is the representative here -

very nice. the Poole is awesome, so is the no 7. many of the no 5 bayonets you see are in ruff shape.

Lotsa British bayonets on the market over here.
On the previous Ciney shows there wer crates of grease covered WWI long SMLE bayos.
If you want I can look out for some stuff for you. Just lemme know what you want and your price range. Next Ciney show is last sunday of this month.

nice- having a red and black no7. I only seen one black handle one and they wanted a lot for it. I like the blades on the short British bayonets. I don't have enough of them to sell yet (need more). Do you have pics of the no 6?

no , its a rarer bird , im not an avid seeker - more an opportunist/impulse buyer , there are not so many i need these days but that one is absent from my collection - course it might mean buying another firearm .... :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:


i ended up with both the red and black by accident attending a gun show with a fellow member - he helped me out
