KS98 Short Bayonet - Puma Rig with Portepee
Here is another recent pick up in this bayonet grouping I acquired. KS98 Short Bayonet - Full Rig by Puma - Solingen. Nice black dress frog and Portepee. I believe portepee is for Infantry - 1st Battalion - 3rd company. It is a nice knot and in excellent condition. Not sure on that but maybe one of our knot wizards will know more than I on it its significance / division / branch.

Been told that Billy G is the man on these. He was very kind and helpful with my recent post of a group of portepees
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

I believe you're correct about this infantry knot, 1st company, 3rd battalion. Overall, a very nice rig.
Many thanks for the kind words
I did see your Gebr. Gräfath KS98 on WAF. You're right, a fairly rare maker to encounter on anything, including a KS98. It should make a maker mark nut very happy.
Hi Kirk..looks like you hit the jackpot with all these bayo threads all of which are in excellent condition. Instant collection . Regards Larry
