    It is a nice bayonet but it is not for a fireman. A fireman wouldn't need to be able to attach it to a rifle.

    My guess would be a Flak dress bayonet in fine condition.
    Made by Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Cie.

    Nice Dress bayo ChBingle

    Typical standard seen by WKC with Red felt buffer
    As Kirby states ..it is not a Firemans bayo . Check out this thread in the differences between the Dress and Firemans type

    K98 bayonet vs. The Firemans dress bayonet. differences

    Good to know! I was told Fireman’s, but as long as it’s an original German Bayonet I’m fine with whatever it is haha

    Thanks for the info, I’ll have to read up on that thread! Any way to determine exactly what type of bayonet it would be? Perhaps Flak as Rbminis states above?

    You can see the difference in the quillon cross guard ..which has an up and downward bend.

    The red felt insert indicates Flak.
