I've seen similar knives offered in the replica catalogs as Union side arms for the American Civil War. They were supposedly the north's answer to the southern bowie, and were carried by riflemen.

That said, I'm pretty sure this isn't a Civil War piece. However, I'm comfortable that it's not a bayonet.
