The weapon was manufactured from 1897 to 1945 by the Matsushita National, the Kokura-Tokyo Arsenal, and the Toyoda-Jodoshoki Seisakusho Arsenal. The type 30 bayonet is also known as pattern 1897. Early type 30 bayonets usually sported a hooked quillion guard which gave it a distinct look, but later models had a straight hand guard.
