UK 1907 pattern bayonet Ricasso stamps showing Vickers manufacture and Canadian acceptance marks, Could there be a contract placed between Canada and Vickers for 1907's. Vickers apparently made the least of all 1907 manufacturers , however the vast majority are marked with Canadian acceptance marks? There is a Vickers in Canada, maybe that is the connection???

Removed muzzle ring and press stud

Total length = mm                  Blade length = mm              Blade width = mm              MRD =  mm                           

Not strictly Canadian this is a Ross converted into a purpose made knife by reversing the crossguard and machining in a "sawback" comparisons with other knives makes me think this may be for fishing as the sawback type is similar to that seen for cutting nets. Any further information would be gladly received
