The Type 30 bayonet was the primary kind of bayonet that was used on Japanese rifles during World War II. The Type 30 bayonet was introduced in 1897 and will fit the Type 30, Type 35, Type 38 and the Type 99 Japanese Rifles and Carbines.
This Type 30 bayonet was manufactured at Toyoda Jidoshoki Seisakusho(Toyoda Automatic Loom Works) under Nagoya supervision and is a tad over 20 inches in length. The bayonet featured on this page has a straight quillon with a rounded pommel and a fullered blade that is sharpened on one side. The grips are made from wood and are secured with two screws. On the right ricasso is found the stamping of the arsenal that supervised the subcontractor as well as the subcontractors assigned mark.
The white lettering on the ricasso is not original and I added this after the bayonet was fully cleaned and inspected. This white lettering is not permanent and is easily removed. To learn what I used for the white lettering please click HERE.
