    Default Gift from Amundsen

    I have the same bayonet as the second. It was a gift from Roald Amundsen to my father in 1926. That would correspond to the piece being Norwegian. The scabbard says D. Cohn, Frankfurt as the other one does also. The one on this forum is the first identical one I have seen. I would be happy to discuss it further.

    Hi,

    the frog is marked with D. SOHN FRANKFURT 41

    Such, ("captured"), bayonets were in use in the Wehrmacht and were manufactured under German occupation in several thousands.

    The designation of this bayonet in the Wehrmacht was 102(n).

    Cheers,
    R.

    I tend to agree on the KS98 H Naubert to be a distributer and not a maker I like the Norge one and have seen them with a Waa on the cross guard. timothy

    Interesting. The past 60 years I assumed it said Cohn. Now I can see that it is in fact Sohn. The number 41 cannot relate to the year as it was obtained from Amundsen in Spitsbergen, Norway, in 1926, during Byrd's expedition. Can anyone decipher the markings on the blade? I apologize for not being familiar with all the detailed terms.

    Hello,

    yes the second is a norwegian - M1894 Knivbajonett Krag Jørgenson -

    Made by Kongsberg Våpenfabrikk for the use with the Krag-Jørgensen rifle M1894 and carabine M1912. Kal.: 6.5 x 55 mm

    On the blade you can see the initials of the King "Haakon 7" (1905 - 1957) and the mark "'HF" of the accaptance officer Haakon Finne.

    The moste of the bayonets were captured by the germans in 1940 and were used intensely. The new name was Seitengewehr 102(n).

    Unfortunately the bayonet and the scabbard have mismatching numbers.

    Frogs and bayontes were export Poduktions of german firms. D. Sohn Frankfurt/M. 41 is not a Date from 1941... it is a adress.

    Regards.
