Zed, you're right. Even if it had some provenance as to where it came from, that's a lot of dosh. If it were priced at around the price of a normal No9 bayonet, or a little more, it might be worth it for novelty value, but otherwise, that would be a no for me.
I see there's a button that, if my French is holding up, gives you the option of making an offer. Don't suppose it would harm to make a cheeky one. You never know.

They are asking 340 Euro's!!
A good No9 Bayonet might be worth around 50 Euro's in Europe; so I think the seller is looking for a sucker to buy at that price.

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

i agree - the bayo is most likely a legit - perhaps saveage - explains the faint S but the handle looks like someone with time on their hands did a fine job of it , if anyone finds something similar in a reference or has bought one in the past would love to know of it in detail , for now - ots trench art or fantasy item but a fun one to be sure - i would hold onto it ...unless someone offers you a proffit of course ,

Could well have been a "squaddie special". But it's just as likely to be some underhand work from an employee at one of the Ordinance Factories. Where the slightly bored worker could lay hands on the odd bayonet, together with a worn out barrel waiting for the chop lying about and a workshop with the required tools to cut the barrel and fabricate. Just the thing for a Saturday night in Liverpool. Doesn't explain how it got to France though.

Paddy;

It doesn't appear to be marked at all.
I think I see a faint "S" stamp.
It still has some cosmo on it

well - no need to worry of scewreing three people as this did not exist in WWI - nor is it long enough , the no9 is similar to the no5 - all WWII or later and about a half at best the length more likely a third , not to say id like being scewered by it any more , all are nasty 

they go cheap in bayo prices as noted above , even with their scabbard bits ,

Sarco are selling the bayonet & scabbard, but no frog, for US$30.oo

I made a "handle" for a No 9 years ago.  Figured it seemed a shame a decent blade didn't have a handle!
The one in the opening post looks rather hard to hold, the grip being round and all.
