    Default "Crank Handle" Bayonet

    A guy walks into the office today to show me this. From researching these boards I know a little about it. From what I understand these are heavily faked. This one is missing the rivet at the throat of the scabbard which I understand means that it is somewhat dubious. This is not my area of collecting, and a little knowledge is dangerous, so opinions are welcome.

    Best Regards,

    Looks to have honest age to it. Pity it has been cleaned.

    Cheers, Ade.

    An original "DEMAG" without its leather fittings/paint & the tip missing from blade....still a nice piece IMO...I have one of these for sale....its in classifieds, but the photos have not uploaded for some reason..so here's mine..for comparison...for some reason a part of the cross guard has broke off ! (before I got it !)
    Prost ! Steve.
