World War 2 Bayonets

Italian Carcano M 1891 Bayonet

Carcano Bayonet M1891

French Bayonet M 1916

This weapon had no cutting edges. It was meant for pointing, not for cutting. The “X” shaped cross section tore blood vessels so much apart that they did not close any more.
Expressing French sense of style this bayonet had a copper alloy handle which is unsual.
