    I have never heard of, or seen one of these before, in any manual, or training film. Could it have been a post war job, put on as protection in a display, or to protect a kid from getting stabbed in play?
    All training I have seen, always allowed a soldier to advance and stab at a dummy, and or used the scabard as protection.

    Dont believe is real, they have not time made any practice bayos in 1943, when overall Germany was under allied bombing, maybe a postwar upgrade?. Could You send details about serial number and letter, looks like a switch piece, thanks,best regards,Andy

    why would you have a "practice bayo"! never heard of that ..and from personal experience (modern force) still would never use something like that.

    allmost looks as if the end of a scabbard is stuck on the end.. but it would be great if it was actually a "practice bayo" ...still something that I would love to have Andy!

    Thanx for sharing!!!!!

    Hi Ronnie, I don't know if you already know Andy? But I would greatly respect his opinion. If I had a K98 bayonet question, he would be one of my first ports of call. I know Andy from elsewhere. He has been compliling data on these bayonets for years and knows his stuff.

    Cheers, Ade.
