    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...
    cheers, Glenn

    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.
