    Very interesting. That took some work. I've often read that the Allied troops supposedly executed any German caught with the sawtooth bayo, so do you think they were trying to save their own butt by doing this? Maybe I'm stating the obvious. I like the metal finish on the blade and handle.

    Theres something in the book "All Quiet on the Western Front" involving these bayonets and the nasty fate of anyone that was caught with one, I cant remember what it was exactly but it wasnt pleasent.

    Thanks

    Gentlemen....we Brits were experts in both wars re the moral high ground (dirt/smears etc..)...and in this case, quietly forgetting that our engineers also used ''sawbacks'' !
    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)

    Nice one Bill thanks for posting this,i actually wondered what mine would look like without the sawback after hearing about them being ground off. Looks much less terrifying but just as lethal!
