Very interesting and unique bayonet
My grandfather was a collector of rare items, often traveling the world and picking up very valuable pieces of art, deco, guns, etc. He started collecting bayonets when I was very young, and would often pick up new ones from different countries... telling me about the country, the war it was in, and so forth. However, there is one bayonet that he held in great esteem, as it was the only bayonet he wouldn't allow me to handle. He told me it was very rare and unique, but he knew little about it. I regret not asking him more information about it before he died.. as perhaps there was some provenance or story that went along with it to strengthen his claim.
This particular bayonet has a triangle blade, and a wooden block for a handle. In fact, I'm not even certain if it is actually a bayonet. I've yet to find any person who can tell me anything about this item, other than that they've never seen anything like it. Honestly, I have no idea if this item is completely worthless, or worth a fortune... but I would like to at least know some of the whereabouts that it came from... and why it has this wooden block for a handle.
