I don't know if its real or not but i think the etching is beautiful.
This one should be posted in the K98 bayonet sub forum, it even looks like Fireman bayonet, but its hard to see, you dont show the bayo completely, Always do that.
Fragments of an etch are not enough to determen if it fits the blade and sidearm where its been applied to.
Welcome to the forum Fer,,please if you may..a few more photos of the whole bayonet front and back please.
