I did undergo a (very) short period of training with the bayonet when I was a soldier, but that was forty years ago.

Well, you know, there are "knife-edge" or perhaps "knife-edged" cushions - not throw-pillows, but seat cushions, in the world of soft furnishings. Although the Bayonet Sofa doesn't seem to have those, either.

Am I the only one remembering the quote attributed to Talleyrand (speaking to Napoleon): "You can do anything with a bayonet except sit on it."?
