    Is this bayonet really 100 years old ? Does not look it. How do you tell the difference between the WWI and WWII models ? Bought 20 years ago for $45 wrapped in oily butcher paper from a man with a crate full.

    An edited photo.

    Looks like a welded rather than a brazed joint, to me.

    I looked at mine and it is in used condition, but the tang & pommel are brazed. In Gary Cunningham's Bayo Points 10 refer to A Remington Model 1917 Bayonet With Standard Markings and the four following model explanations for details. In Detail of the Tang and Pommel Area it explains it may have been refinished.

    It's a nice looking one and not a reproduction. Refurbed possibly.

    The coppery residue shows that it is brazed. The finish seems to be the darker, earlier refinish, or original manufacture. Thanks to all.

    There was no production after WWI until the sixties when the need for bayonets for trench shotguns outstripped supply. The two 60s manufacturers were General Cutlery and Canadianicon Arsenal Limited. Easy to tell the difference as the post war version has plastic grips, a rough parkerized finish and the guard is held on by roll pins.
