    The black "tar" like stuff is coming from the frog, these frogs were blacked with this stuff, much cheaper than leather. Due to temperature its applied to the handle. I always cleaned them with white spirit, of a kind of solvent, be carefull not the solve the complete handle.

    Jack, Iím not surprised. One time a friend of mine (a specialist collector), and myself went through a large batch of dress bayonets that had slots and functional catches. As I recall, it was only with a relatively few WW I vintage pieces that they actually fit and locked onto the bayonet lug.

    PS: There are no guarantees, but for myself I probably would first try something relatively soft like a toothpick, cut down ice cream stick, etc. with a small drop of light machine oil. Best Regards, FP

    FP,

    I will be cautious! I have already had a bit of a blow out with a helmet decal, I am not keen to repeat it.

    sorry it took so long, but here are a few pics of an e pack long dress dagger from my collection.
    this one has the screws rather than rivets as well.
