    Swedish M1896 bayonet, as used on the Carl Gustafs/Husqvarna M1896/M1896/38/M1938 Mausers and AG42Bs. It is one of the more common and cheaper WW2 era bayonets out there. It is an interesting design -- a hollow metal handle and short blade was a very advanced, ahead-of-its-time design in the late 1800s. Keep in mind at this time most nations had bayonets 16+ inches long.

    The markings on the crossguard give the unit information. I can't read the markings, but this website will tell you all you need to know: http://www.holmback.se/bayonets/Notes-English/swe_unit_markings_eng.htm
