    Default Prussian infantry officers' 1871 sawback "walking out" bayonet

    This is one of my favorite bayonets a Prussian infantry officers' 1871 sawback sidearm. It is a bayonet in appearance only, as it was never intended, nor could it be, attached to a rifle. It was meant to be worn on "dress" or formal occasions only. The blade is very long, slender and brittle, were it ever used as a saw or bayonet, it would surely break. That being said, I find it absolutely beautiful and condition couldn't be better!

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    hello Jim, nice one dress piece, anyway certainly not for Officers, only for NCOs, Officers wore in that time IOD or Sabres.

    That is what I thought, but Ron Reide listed it as an officers model?
