    Hi Matty ...all looks good from what I can see .
    Wait for Anderson , Sleepwalker, Andy and Fred for greater researched feedback.

    There are pinned threads at the top of this sub forum that have a list of producers and other resources. Tap into it

    Some of it is a little hard to read, my initial impression being a later bayonet by WKC in 1944. The grooves in the grips and grip itself refinished probably after WWII. Best Regards, Fred

    Hi there

    Just about to post some clearer photos, I apologise for that as I had to quickly reel some off on my phone.

    Best regards

    Hi there,

    the metal parts of the bayonet are really beautifully preserved. Mna can say like new.
    It is a bayonet from the manufacturer Weyersberg Kirchbaum & Co. Solingen from 1944.

    However, I have a problem with the grips. I suspect that these are not original and the originals have been replaced by reproductions. You can buy them with these grooves:

    Grooves do not normally belong in there, but were often added by soldiers. To the unworn condition, this fits only conditionally.

    Can you remove the handles and see what's underneath? Matching numbers on the handle scales? This is the only way to clarify this question seamlessly and without a doubt.

    Regards
