How about an easy one? I'll scan more difficult ones tomorrow when I get a hand on my digital camera.

I have this on my bookshelves: what exactly is it?

Yeah, right on!
If not its official designation, can you give me its nickname?

This may be way off Nemo, but did they call it a Rosalie ? (I haven't researched this much so it is just a possibility. I think it was a nickname for some type of bayonet but I'm not certain)

Exactly! Well done to both of you

The Baïonnette Lebel Modèle 1886/93/16 (the one pictured here, with a brass grip handle) was affectuously nicknamed the Rosalie by popular singers and comic actors of the time. The name stuck in the propaganda campaigns but I doubt that the average poilu in his trench showed enough romanticism to give his bayonet a sweet name.

The cruciform shape of its blade is peculiar. I've heard that it was designed to make wounds more lethal than those caused by a standard bayonet. Any solid information on this point?

The standard flat blade was prone to get caught into ribs and things...this one with its multiple blood grooves and sharp point made it better for the withdrawl (a vaccum thing) and it was easier to get in aswell because of it pig sticking sharp profile....same principle as the sabot round smaller surface area with greater penetrating power.
A mate of mind he collects this type of thing and has shite loads of books etc...I think I should start woorying about him....he sure likes his sharp metal killing thing....hmmmm

Oh and its shape made it stronger....

Thanks for sharing the information, makes sense indeed. Always fascinating to see how far into detail engineering can go to kill efficiently.

The triangular bayonet is indeed more lethal and IIRC currently banned from the modern battlefield as part of the Geneva Convention.

Heavens you are good Lance You're so right. Well as usual I've learned something too. I would never know about these things if it wasn't for these terrific threads and all the knowledge you folks have. Okay this is where I found it and the details..

Imperial Russian Nagant Revolver M. 1895 (Double Action)
Cal. 7.62mm

DESCRIPTION: Early, seven shot, double action Imperial Russian officer revolver. Marked on the frame with wording in Russian: "Tula Emperor's Peter the Great Arms Factory 1916". CONDITION: Very good. 50% of original blue turning to patina. Slightly worn original checkered grips. Mismatched serial number on the cylinder. Very good bore. Strong action. This pistol is in original World War One condition, not a reblue, not an import. Gas-sealed cylinder. Complete with lanyard ring. No import stamps. Serial# 148XX. (Ref. "Geschichte und Technik der europaischen Militarrevolver" by Rolf H. Muller, pp. 952-953).
