    I would also agree with Anderson that this has been post war produced as the last service entry for Carl Schmidt was in 1950 when Kuno Ritter took over the business and carried on into the year 2000.

    Schmidt made during the the TR period SA, HJ , NSKK ..and had a license for RZM daggers and an SS RZM contract number 1222/39 SS.
    As of the year 2000 according to Anthony Carter ..Schmidt was offering a range of stainless steel professional knives .,, cleavers, and steels with Rosewood handles.

    The Knife posted above is and could be a recent as of this new century and aligns with Andersons thoughts that this knife is without a rifle slot.

    Post war (1950's) some of the makers were probably still using parts left over from the TR era. I don't have a firm position on the rivets on this knife ( it's not really a bayonet without a mortice slot), but do believe it was made post WW2.

    Thank you for your opinion. I found another bayonet of this manufacturer. Is this also post-war?

    Larry, let me disagree with you. Who told you that the bayonet does not have a slot for a rifle?

    And this knife cannot be this new century as the trademark of this company is different

    "A Carl Schmidt maker mark on on post war made KS 98"
    I wonder - where does this information come from?
    The mark on the knife of the Hitler Jugend

    Hi Larry. Thank you very much for the information . Until this time, I heard about this only a little bit. Now I know more. My opinion is that this bayonet was made at the end of the war. They are very rare. One, two and all. Maybe single instances were made to order, probably before 1950. This manufacturer later had a different trademark.

    One problem is that there seems to be no clear information on what date the trade marks changed. It's possible the type used during the War years was used for a few years post war. What exactly is the date the "late trademark" began? No one seems to know. What we can do is look at the overall knife or bayonet and it's style, materials and features and then make an opinion based on those facts. The picture I posted on #15 is from a thread in this forum, you could search it. In your example (post #1) the absence of a locking button on a military KS98 would suggest "post war", also the blade fitting and width is a little unusual.
