    Default Private purchase parade bayonet

    Hi Guys, I only have one example of this type of bayonet. These were an optional item which a German soldier could buy at his own expence for walking out. They were popular items pre war.

    These bayonets came in two size options. This is the smaller sized bladed bayonet and was only worn by NCO's. They were always worn with a decorative knot. The system of colours used is a very complex one. The silver and green knot shown denoted NCO status.

    This example is not maker marked and has a simple bright finished plated blade. Soldiers could buy blades with a large variety of etched designs on them if they wished to pay more. (Beware of fakes of these)

    The hilt has a very stylised eagles head design and is made from zinc with a thin silver wash finish. The grip plates are a black plastic/bakelite. The slot where the bayonet would have been fixed to the rifle has a decorative red felt insert. BTW these bayonets were not really intended to fix to the rifle and some have dummy push button so they cannot be fitted. This one does work however.

    The scabbard has a black gloss paint finish.

    The bayonet frog would have been a "patent" type high gloss finished leather which would match the parade belt.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Dimas, thanks! That is truly one stupid ill thought out law. I dread that kind of thing happening here.

    Hi Al, these are still an affordable item and the knot does indeed set it off.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Jacob, I have never made any great study of these, but what makes you say it was made by WKC?

    Is the "Florian Geyer" bayonet one of the British made fantasy etched combat K98 bayonets? Please show it in a new thread.

    Hi Ty, please show yours!

    Cheers, Ade.
