    Default Nice yard sale find

    Hi guys I just picked up two German ww2 dress bayonets both made by W.K.C one is in great shape and still has the red wool in the slot for attaching to a K98 and the other one is nice, but has some chipping to the grip. I also picked up a K98 combat bayonet with frog also made by W.K.C but has unmatching numbers and some one has sharped it. Finnaly but not least I bought a WW1 Austrian deer leg knife that is about the size of a boot knife I am not very shore what it was used for but I liked it. All these items came from one yard sale that was held by a son of a vet that served in ww2 and picked these items up at the end of the war. I bought these four items all together for $50. Hope you guys like and maby could help me with some information about the deer leg knife.

    Thanks
    Iron Cross

    Hello Iron Cross,
    that's almost for free... and everything seems to be in good condition too...
    Anyway, "the deer leg knife" is a German private puchase trench knife commonly used in WW1...

    I'm not an expert in trench knives, but I know that both German and Austrian soldiers had these kind of knives. Since it's a private purchase item, you can't tell it's German or Austrian, unless... you see some markings. Please show pics of the markings...

    Hi Adler like I stated before the blade reads "crown cuttlery Co Austria". I can not get a good pic because my camera is not working at the moment.
