    Looks like a perfectly standard S84-98 to me.

    It appears to have been sharpened.

    Too short - has someone messed with the blade tip ?

    The "148" is some sort of control number applied during the manufacturing process.

    The frog is non-standard.

    Hope this helps a little.

    Regards

    Hi Richie
    Thanks a lot for your valuable information.
    Ya!Maybe someone messed with the tip before and restored the blade but I am not sure either.
    Do you think it's a good idea to get another original or repro grips to fix it or just leave it alone?thanks

    Cheers
    Kevin

    Hi Kevin , incidentally , the code fnj was designated to the maker Coppell GMBH . I would say if you can get hold of some original grips it would look much better

    Hi Alan & Richie
    Thanks for your information and suggestion.Do you know the original grips should be the wood or bakelite ones for this set?Or any of them is OK?thanks again.

    Grips ?

    My knowledge is not that specialised I'm afraid.

    Have you seen this site - lots of photos of S84-98s - you might be able to form some sort of judgement yourself.

    k98 bayonets data and registry

    Grips were often replaced when bayonets were repaired or refurbished.

    Good hunting !

    BTW Do you know how to preserve this baby from oxidization and the stiffness for the frog ,thanks again.

    Hello the grips should be brown colored plastic, the german frog was cut down and attached on remains of origin frog stud, to realise a haenger.Its certainly a postwar upgrade.best regards,Andy

    Hi Andy
    Thanks a lot for your professional inspiration.I really appreciate it.But I wounder would this "postwar upgrade" lower its value or make it become valuable "rare" one?thank again.
    Cheers
