Do you mean a standard bayonet that has had the blade reduced in size....I only collect British, but have seen Victorian examples shortened for cadet use.

I have problems typing also and often make mistakes owing to dreaded dyslexia, but a bayo and a bayonet are different things my friened! The first is an 'orrid American expression, the second, well, a sharp pointed thing that belongs on the end of a rifle


Also, the S. in S.71 is for Seitengewehr or sidearm, so S.71 means it is a type 71 bayonet.


Are there cadet versions of the S.71? Yes. See the discussion at: http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forums/topic/160916-german-m1871-bayonet/?page=2 especially the discussion at post 36.
