This page is about bayonet collecting, which is my passion for at least 15 years. More then 500 bayonets decorate my attic. Though my first pieces, which I still have, I aquired in primary school. I want to share some of my experience, photos and other info mainly about my personal coollection. I hope it can serve as a reference for many other collectors. I also serves as my personal notepad – I look into the page when I want to recall something myself.
I think everybody will find here a huge photographic material for reference. I also tried to incorporate effective search and filter mechanisms on the page.
Sale option is just an add-on – every collector has some duplicates or wants to reprofile his collection. You can’t store those things sometimes, there is no place;) So only bayonets marked “in stock” are for sale, rest is for reference, as in catalog. If one day I decide to sell my collection, I will just add prices and in stock attribute;)
My collection is growing still. And I learn bit by bit – not fast, I’m not the historian nor the antique dealer. I think some pieces here can be interesting even for advanced collectors. All the bayonets presented are from my private collection, though a few I’d sold. I still work hard – I’m sure there are many mistakes in the content – treat it with reserve and always let me know if any information is wrong – thanks!
Somehow my collections becomes surrounded by some peripherials – other kinds of edged weapons and black podwer percussion weapons serving as stands for bayonets;)
I’m always ready to talk about bayonets. People who want to sell something – sure You can contact me and make offers.
I’m always ready to buy interesting bayonets – make offers!
