The reproduced version of the Bayonet Knife used the 1st & 2nd World War ; commonly known as Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk III Bayonet
A much-used historic weapon but less known today.
Bayonet Knife attached with the rifle was mostly used as the second armory in the WW1 and WW2. While everyone associates the Gurkhas with the Kukri, we decided to showcase a less famous, but much-used weapon used by the Gurkhas. A Gurkha's primary weapon is the rifle. To this day, these rifles still come equipped with a detachable bayonet. Fixed to the end of a rifle, the bayonet turns the rifle into a makeshift spear, allowing a soldier to keep his distance while stabbing.
This Bayonet knife is a reproduction of a World War I & II, Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk III Bayonet. Many enemies of the Gurkhas met their end at the point of this bayonet. Once the ammunition runs low, the order 'fix bayonet' is heard, the enemies experience true fear as a line of Gurkhas charge their position with bayonets fixed. While originals were mass-produced by machine, the Bayonet reproduced by Khukuri House is hand forged in Nepal by master craftsmen.
This Bayonet has a 12" blade with a fuller on both sides. The hole in the finger-guard represents the attachment point, where it would be fixed to the rifle. The 5mm thick blade continues through the full flat tang handle. The bayonet also features an accurate representation of the original's steel butt-cap. Compare the repro Bayonet to the original in the photo to see what a faithful a reproduction we have created.
Despite its primary use as a weapon, it is also a very well-built utility weapon and tool. The Bayonet adds depth and variation to our already outstanding product range.
