Very rare

Country: Austria
Type: Tool, Knife, Equipment, Dagger, Sword, Uniform
Period: 20th - early (WW I)
Condition: Good

It's a unique emotion to have in your hands a Carcano 91 AZF, a captured Mod.91 bayonet with Austrian modifications, a mod. 91 tube-shaped emergency bayonet for the Mannlicher M.95, or even a simple Sturmesser with the carved symbol of the Arditi or a fasces.

These objects embody life and death, the history of men and battles that took place during the Great War on the Italian front, and are one of the most concrete testimonies that survived up to today about the war events on the Isonzo and Karst, passing through Caporetto and the Piave, all the way to the triumph of Vittorio Veneto.

No other object can better describe the symbiotic link and similarities, history, needs, but also the hatred, the battles and rivalries between Austrians and Italians during the Great War.

They too, like the soldiers, passed or were born on either of the two sides, wounded and made surprise attacks, assaulting and shooting with their rifles. For they also sacrificed themselves as did the men who, by birth or by origin, by ideals or by necessity, joined either side of the opposing armies.

The territory itself, like these objects, was taken and lost, stubbornly kept and left again, soaked in sweat and blood.

Perhaps it is only ignorance, but we do not believe that other military objects had the same fate in the same measure and dynamics, but we know and speak of those of our front, and it is one of those very bayonets that we present here:

Here is an ordinary 91 model bayonet produced in Terni in 1915, just when Italy joined the conflict, and certainly belongs to one of those bayonets looted in battle by the Austro-Germans or captured in abandoned warehouses during a chaotic Italian retreat, Caporetto above all others.
