German Fighting-Trench Knife/Fixable Bayonet - ID
Hello Folks -
Anyone recognize this one. It's a combo Fighting Knife / Bayonet. Fully fixable on a Gew. 98 or K98. Blade slightly over 7.5"s. I don't believe it is plated, just highly polished with a sharpened edge. No maker marks. Grips seem to be hardened plastic.
Oh, by the way..., anyone recognize the 'tank' or 'self propelled gun?' Made of a strange cellulose/plaster like material.

Hi, Mike !
It seems to be a private purchased WWI trench-knife/dagger-bayonet and it shows the, so called, "carbine-blade".
I assume, the maker could be Pack or Aesculap ?
Grip-plates made of bakelite ?
There´re German dress-bayonets made in blade lenght´s of 20cm an 25 cm
