I bought this last week to compliment my Finnish Mosin Nagant rifles...

This is an m/27 bayonet made by Fiskars some time between 1927 and 1934. These were intended for use on the Finnish Armys new m/27 rifle. There were never enough m/27 bayonets made to equip every m/27 rifle in Finnish service. The Finnish military withdrew bayonets from service in late 1942 as the higher ups realised that too many bayonets were being discarded in the field by soldiers who preferred their 'puukko' knives (small hunting/fishing/utility knives that every Finnish male had owned since their childhood) for 'close in' work....and the weight of a bayonet just added to the front line soldiers burden. The Finnish Civil Guard used a near identical bayonet for their M28 and M28/30 rifles. All Finnish bayonets fit all types of Finnish Mosin.

Most of the bayonets still warehoused in the 1970s were scrapped by the Finnish Defence Forces.
Always looking for Finnish WW2 rifles and militaria....
