You can see where the nickel plating is flaking on the guard in the 3rd picture.
If the guard was cut, it was done at the factory and the parts were refinished.
A-H 1888/16 bayonets were not nickel plated, nor were M95Ms.
Whomever plated it did so long after this antique was made, and remade, and probably remade again. (This likely began life as an 1888 bayonet, converted to 1888/16, and, again, converted to M95M. ...And then hacked by a civilian.)
Don't even try it. It's even worse than the internet would lead you to believe.
