    Hi Jacob, sorry but I have to agree with the other members. The criminal responsible for this crime was actually English.

    This unit was raised to divisonal status in 1944 by which time these bayonets were no longer produced.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I'd heard that most of these bayonets, knives and daggers were engraved during the 1970's. Due to the high quality engraving collectors are now recognising them in there own right and the prices reflect this. Although asking 350euro is way too much.

    Mate i hope collectors aren't recognising and making them collectable in their own right

    Paul E I agree it is criminal to deface an original historical object and then try to sell it as an original. Most engravings that were done are on K98 bayonets and we all know these weren't originally engraved in WW2. It was during the 1970's that very high quality SS division engravings were made on many K98 bayonets, believed by a Belgium jeweller who has since died. These fakes have since become collectable in there own right not as original peices but because of the quality engraving. Even today this quality cannot be matched so I understand fakers are not doing them now although I could be wrong.
    I personally do not agree with any of this although I have seen a few over the years and there are those who do seek them out. But as long as they are sold for what they are, an original Bayonet with modern engraving no one is deceived. The ones I've seen were selling for between 50.00 and 70.00 UK.

    Here is an example of the British made fantasy SS bayonets. This one is for sale at 185 which I regard as a sick joke.

    These are not engraved but are acid etched. They used to be for sale in "Exchange & Mart" magazine most weeks in the mid to late 1970's. I think they were about 15 back then. Almost any SS unit under the sun was available.

    Cheers, Ade.

    185 pounds its 200 euros

    what can i say about these dont know

    I tell you something of how far it is going already

    I know a SS veteran in person he fought with the 12th SS Pz Div, he was just my age then and was wounded several times in the legs and his chest. But he loves to go to the fair here because he can see some old mates from the same Kompanie and he also like`s to buy real stuff and here it comes he get ripped off too with these kind of bayonets.

    i`ll post some pics soon becuase i see him next week
