    Next step to improve the knife-bayonet was made by the germans in 1915.

    The 1915 Move-Werke combines the standard 84/98 pommel with flashguard and a 71/84 blade with a steel scabbard. Seems they only appear with a 1915 date. None before or after, right in the heart of the shortage.
    Move-Werke are not really a transition piece, more a side shoot. the method of construction of hilt is completely different to the other 84/98 models, a method that took a lot more work and more hand fitting as the grips needed to have additional machining.

    Would be very interesting to know if the number hidden in the lock-button shown in the pic below is a lot number, fell free to post additional information and pics.

    Many thanks
    Carlo

    Here is another 1915 move-werke web find,it shows 5452 hidden on the press stud,i think we can say it is a lot number, the first german knife-bayonet with a lot number?
