Product Information

A completely original and untouched British Martini Henry 1860 Pattern Yataghan Bayonet & Scabbard with Leather Frog. It is dated 3/85 = March 1885 with War Department and Broad Arrow acceptance stamps. The leather scabbard is also military marked. All parts are in superb original condition. The blade has remained untouched and the grips are free of any cracks or chips. The pommel is numbered "245" followed by "22" that have been struck when it was reissued.

In the absence of an approved sword bayonet at the time of general issue of the Martini Henry, the Pattern 1860 Yataghan sword bayonet was adapted for the .577 Martini Henry. This involved the bushing of the muzzle diameter to suit the Martini Henry, and a mortised slot cutting into the pommel to suit the bayonet band. The Yataghan was standard issue to NCO's and rifle regiments.
