.

This Wurttemberg M1829 infantry Faschinenmesser (machete/bayonet) has a wonderful feel, weight and balance. The overall length in its leather scabbard - which is reinforced on the inside of the tip end - is 20 5/8 inches. The length of the blade and hilt is 19 1/4 inches. The blade length is 13 1/2 inches and the false back edge (which is quite as sharp as the cutting edge) measures about 5 1/4 inches although it is beveled for 8 inches. The hilt with its 4 3/8 inch long guard measures 5 5/8 inches long and appears to be a solid, cast piece construction. There are no markings on this piece that I can find, and perhaps it was never officially issued. The blade is is very nice condition with a couple of very minor nicks on the edge and no pitting or rust. The scabbard is in good condition with no cuts to the leather but some oxidation of the metal throat and perhaps a repair of the belt hook. If more photos are desired, please feel free to ask ......
