Family heriloom saber/bayonet
An actual military issue weapon in the family, this piece is getting
passed down almost like an heirloom now. Originally it belonged to
my great-grandfather when he served in Queen Victoria's army.
I did some rust removal on
the guard a number of years ago, and almost regret doing that now. The
guard used to be almost the same color as the grip.
It's more of a bayonet than anything else, but due to the size, I
classify it as a sword rather than a dagger in my collection.
