Original fireman's dress bayonet, produced by Carl Julius Krebs as indicated by the lobster logo (not a scorpion)...The device on the grip was added by someone later and doesn't belong there...
A freshwater lobster, specifically... For the benefit of the non-German speakers, allow me to explain the reason for chosing that animal as a company logo: The German word Krebs means crayfish/crab.
Out of the 2 Kreb brothers who shared the same name but different logos ( Thankyou Steve ) there were Carl Julius Krebs with a kings crown over the letter "K" logo...and did not produce Fireman bayonets....Peter Daniel Krebs...which the logo looks more like a Lobster..produced Dress and Firemans bayonets.
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

Is it yours or something you're thinking about buying?
It's mine. Excellent Info guys. I guess I now have Crabs also.
Thanks for the help
I wish they had not screwed up the handle with the logo or Initial
