    Hello,
    Sorry to say, but this is not the frog that you need with this kind of parade bayonet. The one you need is narrower and has a different treatment of the leather, which is often varnished. The frog shown here is for the S 84/98 bayonet, in theory for non mounted personel as it does not have a leather strap that retain the handle of the bayonet.
    Thanks

    thank you for the response. I bought with gift card so I'm not as bummed out, and I can put it on a different bayonet. I think it does give it some more character though. for future reference can you post pics of the frogs you are talking about, thanks!

    Very correct you need a KS98 dress frog usually made from patent leather and slimmer than your s84/98 combat frog I have had many vetern purchases in this type frog but probably the vet didn't know and a frog was a frog to him. Nice s84/98 frog and would look good with one in it. timothy
