    I agree with Paratrooper/Jim - I think this is a German private purchase item.

    The scabbard is very German looking. Very similar items are shown in Le Nouvel Atlas dec la Baionette de Collection by Jean Pierre Vial. The shape of the hilt and blade together with the rivetted grips and scabbard are virtually identical to the one shown in the first post.

    The remains of the green felt washer at the hilt end of the blade are often found on German bayonets/sidearms.

    Found this on the web - similar in many ways I think to the one posted and identical to the one referenced in the book. Made by WKC with engraved blade.

    Regards

    Thanks gents for the detective work. I did not see any type of markings on the blade that would indicate any maker,, as also it was confusing to few other members. Thanks again for digging out this information. Regards Larry

    wow good work... it was on ebay i was thinking on snatching it up,,,, let it go though, it was very interesting looking and peaked my interest, im not a big blade collector but some do catch my eye. i do need a NCO or infantry hungarian bayonet that goes on a hungarian 43 mauser, they seem to be elusive.
