A heavily modified Mk.II Ross Rifle bayonet that has had the muzzle spring removed, and the cross guard reshaped. Many similar examples can be found and are commonly associated with conversion to a fighting knife. The length of the knife measures approximately 31cm while the re-shaped blade measures 19.5cm long. The majority of the factory stampings are worn down, but the Ross Factory acceptance mark (crown over 4) remains present on the tang. The leather scabbard shows significant use with the belt loop torn away and the scabbard throat held to the body by rusting period applied wiring. At the very tip of the chape on the reverse a Canadian broad C arrow can be found as pictured. A salty example, which is reflected in the price.
