The following table provides a list of the bayonets pictured on the worldbayonets.com site by overall length, from shortest to longest. The list is by no means exhaustive, but includes many bayonets encountered today. This approach may be helpful if you are unsure of the country of origin. The dimensions listed were measured from actual specimens, so variances may exist due to manufacturing differences, repointing, or measuring error.
