This is a sword bayonet, in use from about 1885 to about 1905. It was originally designed to fit
the Guedes-Castro single-shot rifle, but the rifle order was changed at a later date and the bayonets were
shipped with Kropatschek repeating rifles; therefore the tag Kropatschek bayonet in lieu of the original designation.
