Nice friend you have, and a nice bayonet too.
Indeed - nice gift.
It is quite common to find bayonet/scabbard mis-matches.........
Nice gift very nice 84/98 by E&F Horster (ASW) combat bayo in nice condition frog. timothy
These are rapidly becoming very collectible...which having a bayo frog completes the ensemble. I am tempted myself to begin to collect these. keeping things in perspective...some view K98 bayos as being a lesser class in collecting. I whole heartedly disagree..although the daggers and swords we mostly see here on this forum..are of a dress wear nature and honor..one must not forget that these K98 bayos were used to kill people..and each bayo has their own number count. These bayos saw more battles..than just walking around parading in Berlin or standing guard at Rallies. If there is a story to tell of when and where and what happened...it would be from one of these bayos. Cold History...but yet cool to collect Regards Larry
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

Well said Larry - I thought I'd get just one single example,
but I now have five of these.........!

Reason: Added pics.........
I have recently picked one up (an asw41 like this one). Now I'm itching for a all matching one. You just can't have one!
