I don't know what's special about a South African No9 bayonet!
But I do have a British No9 bayonet for that rifle.

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Nasty looking bit of kit that! Very much like a jungle carbine bayonet.

Anyone know the info on the No 9 bayo stampings?
There isn't much on mine, but there is an "A" stamped into it, & what appears to be:     -5
                   B

and another small, faint stamp, that looks like a Mazda emblem.

..you recon they are just armourer's stamps, or a manufaturer's id?

Now that's a knife! Been laughed at by buddies when I say the "blood groove" was made to strengthen the blade (think I beam) and to lighten it.

it also allows for the bayo to be withdrawn from your victim. Otherwise the suction would resist your attempts to pull it out.
The tri-conered bayo (like the ones used in the Un-Civil War) have 3 blood gutters, & will actually go thru you slicker than snot on a door knob!The body has difficulty healing from a triangular wound..so a relatively slight would will cause a lot of bleeding..thats why they were "outlawed" @ Geneva Convention

i think he wants to match the bayo to a SA rifle that he owns , not trying to put words in the OPs mouth but that was my read , i have seen SA marked no9s and they are out there if that is the intent , otherwise these guys are offering items that are correct for your rifle ,

Thanks for posting that Terry Lee. 
I was wondering what the difference was compared to the UK version. Is the scabbard cast metal or plastic?

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

yes , there are no9s that have the blade of the no5&7 bowie style drop point  , there are also the no9s with the blade of the US no4-5-6-7 spear point , i do not have the SA version yet , but not really looking for it either , dont have an SA rifle , 

i do have a US no4 , 6 &7 yet as well as the 9 that is back to resembling the commonwealth no5 , its all a tad confusing if your only looking for one , but when you were looking for them all it came into perspective , i was and for a time was close within a time zone of a couple hundred years , 

i do have the FAL blade that looks like that
