Default WWII Bayonet

My wife to be was left a japanese bayonet from WWII over a yr ago. I was wondering if anyone might know anything about it. I can get some pictures later. It has never been clean ( still has blood on the blade and scared to clean it for fear of messing up the blade ) and still being held by its Wooden scabbard. It was brought home by a Sailor of the US Navy. It sat in a closet for yrs. The rifle that went with the bayonet is said to be in the house some where but we have yet to find that..... YET.

If it's an Arisaka, don't toch anything on it. Depending on the type, you'd be hard pressed to find anything but a reproduction today, so this may be very valuable.

Looks to be a Jap bayo. I have one just like it, with the rifle, bolt cover and mum still on, that my dad brought home from Burma during WWII. It was a battlefield pick-up.

Check on the Internet. I had a great website on my "favorites" saved, showing all the different arsenal markings, dates of manf, and complete info on the different bayos the japs made during the war. However, my 'puter got a virus and I lost all that info. I do know it is on the Internet though. Good luck.

i found this site.. Markings on Japanese Arisaka Rifles and Bayonets of World War II
which told me that this bayonet was made by National Denki (National Electric).... then i found this site Japan
which told me that "Made by Matshusita National Denki, under Kokura Army Arsenal supervision. Matshusita National Denki translates to Matsu****a National Electric Co. They were founded in 1918 to make consumer household electric apppliances and have evolved into the present-day Panasonic Corporation."

AND


" Type 30


95th Series, late-war substitute-standard or "last-ditch" Type 30 bayonet. These bayonets went along with the 7.7 mm. Substitute-Standard Type 99 Short Rifle.

This example was made by the Hikari Seiki Seisaku-jo KK, under Kokura Army Arsenal supervision, in 1945. The 95th series was the final series produced by Hikari Seiki.

This bayonet exhibits the simplified manufacture typical of late-war substitute-standard bayonets:

Crude, unfullered blade;
Straight crosspiece;
Rectangular pommel; and,
Riveted, slab-sided grips.

The scabbard is a late-war wooden scabbard, held together with string. "

this means that if we can find it i can add a 7.7 mm. Substitute-Standard Type 99 Short Rifle to my collection!!
