A friend of mine came across his late grandfather's WWII bayonets. We could figure out 2 of the 3 with no problem. However, we could no figure out the Link of the Arsenal and Series for the bayonet. Could anyone help with identification?

Hi JR,

I think it is series 33......

The guy's on the gunboards forum are very good with these, perhaps a post over there would help you out also.

Have a look at these links, they might solve your problem.

The series stamps are the same for the Arisaka rifles and bayonets as far as i know.

The Arsenal Stamp is the "four cannon balls" known as the Tokyo Arsenal until 1923 and then a name change to Kokura Arsenal from 1924-1945

Tokyo Hohei Kosho Arsenal. These are the most common of all Type 30, with a total of 61 series made for this pattern alone. Your bayonet falls into series 0, so it is very early. Tokyo made around 4 million of these bayonets in total.
