Hi chaps

Bought this for a very good price, would like opinions as to its authenticity. It looks as though its been refinished, and maybe blued.
Not too bothered either way, cheap for a repro, bloody cheap if its a real one.
Its got a good weight to it, with UFH serial number under correct grips
Any thoughts?
Thanks
Tim

Looks "righteous" to me Tim....i still have some carbine bits for you dont forget.Scabbards original....for sure...1943 date on blade is correct for the last batch of long bayonets

Regards

Lloyd

Thanks, been after a long bayonet for a long time, so pleased its pukka, dead cheap!

What do you suggest for re-touching?

Tim
