    Default ID on a German Knife I Found.

    Would just like some info on this piece i recently found. I have no clue and cant seem to find the exact one online. I have found similar ones but none with the same Nazi badge on the handle.

    It's a dress bayonet but I've never seen one with the Army eagle on the grip. I'd be suspicious.

    Although these are horribly blurry pictures that need to be rotated, I tend to like the bayonet itself. Everything appears to be correct including the markers mark. That said, I too have never seen this addition of the army eagle on the grip. I will not comment on its authenticity as it's nearly impossible to do so, but even with only the poor quality images I kinda like it. Could be some kind of "trench art" or even a special order, I guess. Maybe with some better photographs someone here can help. If authentic, that is one exceptionally nice bayonet.

    Hi Woodzy.welcome to the forum.....The bayonet for sure is authentic...but the added grip eagle is hard to prove if it was done during the period by private practice..or a recent attachment to raise the worth of the bayonet. One point of fact is that when these dress bayonets were distributed..they were without any type of grip embellishments. Sadly these dress bayonets are attacked so frequently with fake inscriptions...Mottos and picturesque combat scenes.
    Your bayonet with the Heer eagle ,,,hard to say if it belongs to the grip..which needs to be compared to actual Heer eagle examples..to see if it matches to other examples. Regards Larry

    Below is a photo of a few K98 bayonets with fake inscriptions...as seen on the Thread.."Near perfect Edged weapon reproductions" within the forum.
    Just to give you an idea of what sick minds can do.. to history to make a few extra dollars. Regards Larry

    These eagles are meant to be worn on the breast or sholder board. They have long spiralled pins as well as short ones similar to a totenkopf.
    Here are some photos of my examples.

    Good for you for pointing this out Larry. Trouble is those inscriptions on the blades look like they could certainly fool the unwary. Hate to think how many have doled out good money for faked items. Collecting of these Third Reich items is a tough field for the novice collector.
