    Oddball bayonet and Japanese naval dirk

    Good day all. I have a shot at couple of blades coming up in a local auction. I'm pretty up on pricing with commonwealth stuff, but these are out of my lane. The bayonet is pattern I've never seen before and the though I recognize the dirk, I have no idea of what fair market value is, and so, no idea of how much to bid. Any input you gentlemen could provide would be most welcome. Sorry for the pics, but at this point, they're all I have.

    Norwegianicon M1916 Kragicon bayonet...and yes, I've had occasion to have one of those Japaneseicon Naval dirks in hand to clean for a merchant here...they're typical of the era. Nice too. His went for about $600 CDN. Yours is missing some of the scabbard fittings though. The Krag bayonet...maybe $150 CDN. Here's a link about it. NORWAY

    Jim, thank you so much. I'd never seen a Krag bayonet so now I know. The fact that there were no rings on the scabbard of the dirk had me scratching my head, but that makes sense now.

    There are several patterns of Krag bayonet, depends on what country. Have a look online, you'll see them all. Dirk, nice blade, maybe a potential buyer will have a better scabbard in hand. Don't give it away if resale is the idea...

    The Kragicon bayonet may be a rarer because it's the longer version and has fullers. I have 3 of short Krag bayonets, without fullers.

    Here's a comparison on Collector Source for you. His is a bit better shape and their stuff is usually priced up. Much of it sits for a good long while before moving too.
