    This is another sawback I have in my collection, I would like to know what the K.S.1.6.6.3 stands for, condition is not to bad but the blade has been sharpened at some time.

    Sorry if I have posted this in the wrong section.

    KS = Kaiserliche Schutztruppe. German Colonial forces.

    This site may be of interest with background and further illustrations of the bayonets they used.

    Z4, you have alot of very nice bayo's, but this 1898 kurzes sawback has got to be my favorite. An issued bayo to the German colonial forces in Africa is a rare bird indeed! A true piece of history from when Germany was becoming a world power and looking to get their slice of Africa like everyone else. The only thing better than this, IMO, is one marked to an airship crew.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Jim

    Interesting the scabbard fonts are different to the bayonet stamping.
