I purchased two. One ended up being what I believe is an Ethiopian parade bayonet as it was chromed in a pattern similar to ways I have seen other African military parade bayonets done. The other was a standard M1889 blade bayonet. Both still had visible Italian markings and no rust or noticeable damage. Good price for the quality!

Happy with purchase, packaging was subpar.

The Bayonet was in surprisingly good condition. No noticeable damage to any of the metal parts, with most of the finish intact. Small amount of damage to the wooden handle, but not enough to actually affect the use of the bayonet. The spring powered clasp for securing the bayonet to the rifle was in perfect working order.
Obviously the bayonet will require cleaning to get off some grime and dirt.
My only complaint was the packaging the bayonet was sent in. It was sent in a large padded mailer, with the bayonet itself wrapped in a thin layer of bubble wrap and tape. The bubble mailer was damaged on arrival, but luckily the bayonet was fine. I honestly expected more care to be given to the packaging.
