    I bought it today and will post better pictures when i have proper daylight, I found the answer in a publiced page of a german bayonet book.
    This one is exactly the same but it has a Wilhelm initial added to the grip.
    Most have been used before or during WW1:

    gerrit..stunning piece ! I like it ! thanks for showing.....looks like a former owner has added the cypher from the handle of an Infantry Officers M1889 sword....
    Prost ! Steve.

    Here are the pictures, indeed the cypher has been added later prop. by its owner.
    Its been made with high precision, i like the white glass eyes.
    As you can read in the article its a private officers purchase and its been used as well as in the imperial, Reichswehr and later Wehrmacht army.
    enjoy the pictures:
