    Default k98 bayonet find

    hi im new to this site and glad i found it,i was looking around a shop that i visit weekly its a antique come junk shop and ive found bayonets in there before,today i went and found a k98 bayonet with the following markings,clemen & jung on one side of the blade and on the other 111 with another 1 written underneath,various waffen marks,bakerlite grips,a small amount of pitting on the pommel press stud working,38 written on the spine,bluing remaining in the blood groove only but overall in fantastic shape,the scabbard has been repainted black a long time ago with 4876 and a 9 underneath on the reverse berg and co which is just readable a few light dents but the best bit is i bought it for 15.00 yes i know i i nearly fell over so bought it with no haste,this was a far cry from the military odessey i went to on saturday,the prices were outragous for a bayonet that was in rank condition glad i held out,i needed one for my k98 rile(deact) i collect rifles and machine guns also bayonets i have 9 different fire arms and around 35 bayonets,hope i havent bored you too much lol.

    Hello,
    Welcome aboard !
    Please post some pics...
    first thing i can tell you is that after the serial number, there should be the serial letter on both bayonet and scabbard (for instance, the 1 after the number 111 might be the letter " i " instead of a 1)...
    Thanks

    Clemen u. Jung is a relatively scarce maker which is a plus. Although I suspect that the scabbard may be from from another bayonet, as bayonets from that period had a few small horizontal lines added to the frog studs. FP

    Can't go wrong for 15 pounds !


    A lot of K98 bayonets are mis-matched. I'd just leave it the way
    you found it, unless you can't stand the paint job, which could be removed.
    Then if you didn't like a naked scabbard, you can always "cold blue" it.

    E-bay would be a good place to look for a closer match,
    but you'll probably pay more than you did for both.




    Keep checking that shop for more bargain K98 bayos ! !
