German K98 with stuck scabbard

Article about: Hello all, I'm new to this site, joined early this month, after discovering a very nice Bertram SS Dagger in a trunk of a late family member's belongings. Sitting next to it was this bayonet

    Makes sense why the scabbard wont come out..because its mismatched..someone jammed it in there.


    Regards Larry
    Hi Larry, I posted the dagger in the forum a couple weeks ago. Getting ready to list it now. Waiting for my PayPal account to get linked up with my bank account.

    Larry....is that a K98 scabbard ?? The fork that goes thru the frog looks like nothing I have seen, & no #s' on the scabbard ??

    Nothing I have ever seen...curious of the letter "U" on the lug Bolt .....wait upon Anderson , Fred or Sleepwalker to chime in...does not look like K98 at all.

    Thread to reference is this one here ..take notice to the present scabbard throat >

    Two small wooden wedges, one going one way on one side of the blade - the other going the other way on the other side.
    Squeeze them toward each other in a workshop vice and the scabbard will come off without damaging the metal.

    I've done it before ( you're lucky there's a gap to work with )

    Since the bayonet looks to be in very good condition and the scabbard does not belong on that bayonet. I would put force on the scabbard.
    Use some wood dowels as chisels/punches on the lip and tap it off the blade after being soaked in PB blaster or WD like suggested.

    For any of you who are curious, Here is the only identifying mark on the scabbard that I could find along with the best pic that I could take of where the blade seems to be stuck. It's doing the wd40 soak right now. Not sure if that will help. It appears to be firmly wedged. I will drain the fluid tomorrow the best I can and see about squeezing it a bit with a vice and shims, as suggested.
    Thanks again, everyone!

    Well I hope that Sturgeon returns to let us know the outcome of our advice.
    I would like to see what is hidden behind that Scabbard.

    It might be a Bulgarian scabbard, but i'm leaning towards Austro-Hungarian, for the Mannlicher M1895 bayonet (as others have mentioned). The blade shape is different to the K98, hence the unfortunate jam someone is now in. The leather frog is German however, and what we can see of the bayonet, it appears in good condition.

    No news from the original poster might mean he has lost his fingers in the attempt to remove the scabbard.
