    I saw this on the web "W.u.K. was the mark used by Weyersberg & Kirschbaum on bayonets they manufactured from 1927 through 1930". A friend said --->George Wheelers Seitengewher book he talks about them and their scarsity. Mine is marked 1930 e/46...mmm

    Just think, I was going to sell this...and now that I know what it is as a transitional bayonet....I did well on my 4 blades

    I Agree the word transitional was never officially used by the Germans...but in the period between Weimar Republic and Hitler, many use the term to distinguish the period of the two Governments. Examples are the m17 or m-18 German helmet being used by the new Wehrmacht until the new m-35's came out. The same was true with equipment. So it is purely just a term to distinguish the period. I was going to sell it when I first picked it with other blades...because I thought it was a WW1 bayonet...now I will add it to my collection. I am still learning...and if someone can provide more info on it, I will appreciate the knowledge and help. So I would assume this being a lot more valuable than a later period piece. If a normal bayonet runs about 150-200 US dollars...would this be about 300 bucks? or higher because of rarity and unit ID and so forth.

    In the Peroid between WR und III Reich never calles them transitional... this is only a wrong modern cration... the same as the "commercials"....

    Also the helmets were only called by the years of issue.

    The most bayonets called transitional are made for contracts of authorities (Bahnschutz, Post, Polizei etc. )
