    Mo, it is exactly what the title says, a bayonet/knife.

    It is a rarely encountered World War I Imperial German Aufpflanzbarer Grabendolch or Fixable Trench Knife - Bayonet, often referred to by collectors as the DEMAG.
    For Mauser M1898 From what I understand it is made exclusively by the firm of Werner & Mertz of Mainz and Viena. If that helps.

    Here is a nice Quote from Civil War Relics.......
    These private purchase combination knife bayonets were produced by Deutsche Maschinefabrik A-G of Duisburg, and the collector nickname originates from the circular DEMAG – DUISBURG makers mark on the ricasso. The combination knife bayonets have a unique “crank” shaped steel handle, which is instantly identifiable. The bayonet-knives were manufactured with 150mm long, double-edged, spear point blades and were 266mm in overall length. The crank handles were of steel, painted with olive green paint. A steel scabbard with a leather belt loop and hilt-retaining strap accompanied the knife bayonets. These ersatz bayonet knives were popular private purchase weapons for German infantrymen fighting in the trenches of the Western Front, as they provided a much handier and more useful multipurpose tool than that standard Mauser M-1898 bayonet.

    Hi !

    You´re showing us a "Grabendolch Modell 1916", 2nd pattern, manufactured by Deutsche Maschinenfabrik-AG, Duisburg (DEMAG)
    I also own two "Demag´s", 2nd pattern, but the maker marks are stamped upon the reverse side of the blade.

    Some other threads regarding this blank weapon:

    http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/imperi...or-fake-26587/

    BTW, I´d leave the condition of the blade as it was before because I prefer such weapons, showing some "Patina" and the "been there, done that" -look !

    Best regards,

    R.

    P.S.:
    Always be alert !
    There´re many fakes outthere !

    The "Grabendolch Modell 1916", another term: "Aufpflanzbares Dolchmesser mit geschweiftem Griff", ("attachable dagger-knife with curved handle"), wasn´t a private purchased weapon !

    Hi All. I am a very new member, but the first thing I see is something very near my hart, crank handle bayonet/trench knife. I would like to make two very small points, can any one comment about the dots . apposed to * in the circle and also the scabbard lack of proud rivet securing the internal spring. Comments would be welcomed, I have one just the same as yours Eric.
