Hakim Bayonet

Egyptian Hakim BayonetThe Hakim Bayonet or Egyptian Bayonet was a bayonet produced in Egypt that looks very similar to the Swedish Bayonet from 1896.

The bayonet was designed for the Hakim rifle and was only produced in Egypt circa 1950.  In the late 40’s Egypt was looking to develop their own weapons manufacturing capacity, so they purchased Ljungmann production tooling and some M1896 bayonet tooling.  The tools were delivered and setup by the Swedes at the Maadi factory.  The date seems to be around 1949 to 1950.

Egyptian Bayonet Marking HakimHakim means “first born”, which is appropriate for Egypt’s first home-produced Egypt Hakim Bayonet Markingssmall arm.  The Hakim marking looks similar to a mouse.  Not sure what it actually represents, but it is rather unique.

Since the design of the Hakim bayonet is based on the Swedish M1896 bayonet design, it just so happens that it will also fit on the 1896 Swedish Mauser, if the cleaning rod is removed.  The Swede M1896 bayonet however does not mount to the Hakim.  The reason for this is the muzzle break doesn’t allow the fit.

The Hakim bayonets aren’t as prevalent as the Swedish bayonets so they tend to go for a little more.  Plan on spending about $40-$80 for a Hakim Bayonet that is in good condition.

  1. During earlier research into the Hakim (‘bought one several weeks ago and am now looking for a bayonet) stated the Hakim marking represented a Pharaoh’s crown. ‘sorry; didn’t save the actual link or reference to the site, so I can’t reference it.
