It doesn't get any better than this one for sure. It's a dress bayonet made by WKC for Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Co. The "clip" is only there for show, and a private purchase dress bayonet with stag horn handles, nice. There would have been a coloured piece of felt in the slide, to denote branch of service.........Coupled with a brown leather scabbard, and Luftwaffe knot AND LBA marked...................very desirable!
Is the scabbard an early date BTW .
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
Hi John, That's great news Thanks mate. The scabbard appears undated Thanks for your help as always
Agree with John's post all the way. Don't think there is any question about this item. Very nice!
Nice ks98! Most likely manufactured around WWI and still being used into WWII.
A good example and nice to see.
