Bayonet Trader

Welcome to my web site that specializes in rare and unusual bayonets!!

I have been collecting bayonets for over 30 years.  I specialize in German bayonets but am always interested in any rare or unusual bayonet from around the world.  Please check out my bayonets that are for sale or trade by going to various sections below.  Unless otherwise specified, all pieces are guaranteed authentic and supported with a 'no questions asked' 3-day return policy.  Hopefully you enjoy this site and I would appreciate any comments you may have.

I also sell a very low cost membership to a Reference Section which provides information to hundreds of bayonets and provides you with its description, photos, rarity and current market value.  This reference section has been the result of compiling and maintaining what information I could find over my past 30+ plus years of collecting.  The advantage of this membership is that it helps you identify or value over a thousand bayonets, is accessible 24/7 and unlike published reference books is constantly updated with new information and prices.  Please contact me for purchasing a membership (see below for more information).  You can contact me at

My web site now is made up of two sections, 1) a 'FREE' section which includes the categories listed below that you can enter and exit as needed to find items for sale and links to other dealers/collectors, and 2) my Reference Section, that requires a paid membership and is password protected, allows people to identify bayonets, determine their rarity, value and the rifles they were issued with.

 PLEASE NOTE: After 15 years of using the same web site format, I have finally 'bit the bullet' and changed the website software.  My old web site had several problems with the online forms not working with all the different browsers, the site was not compatible with new mobile devices like cell phones and tablets, you couldn't see all the photos for a given item without clicking on the individual links and there were many types and errors that needed to be fixed.  All these issues have been improved or eliminated with the new software.  I have been working 6 months so far to transfer all the data and photos from the old software to the new one but hopefully you enjoy my new website with the newer format and find it easier to use.  I expect to have the new website ready to use in another couple of months.  You can check out the free access portion of my website at  This new website will also change access to the reference section which will also look different.  I will let all current reference section members know more when I get closer to implementing the new format.  I would appreciate any comments you may have.
