    ~ 1915 German M98 Sawback Pattern Mauser ‘Butcher’ Bayonet ~


    This bayonet is a late war Mauser ‘Butcher’ bayonet used by the Imperial German Army in World War 1, it was developed for the iconic ‘K98’ Mauser rifle.

    The sawback was made in very small numbers and appears to have been phased out with earlier Sawback’s removed by shaving or filing them off. The Sawback was specifically for pioneers, non commissioned officers and issued for special cases.

    The piece was made by Erfurt. The blade has been well marked and the stamp of both the maker the Imperial Proof on the ricasso and spine as well as the crown over a ‘W’.

    The Butcher was a transitional weapon between the earlier sword bayonet and the modern knife bayonet. This being a later version also has some distinctive marks. As well as the Imperial proof mark and the ‘15’ under a crown stating its manufacture year there are the short ‘ears’ that would fit around the muzzle.

    The Sawback was a unique version of the Butcher Bayonet that was later phased out. What you will commonly see is a shaved line up until the false edge where the saw blade has been removed, usually quite cleanly for Imperial forces or badly done with the bases of the teeth visible for Ottoman variants.

    The scabbard is unmarked and has no paint.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The bayonet weighs 865 grams in its scabbard.

    The bayonet weighs 575 grams on its own.

    In its scabbard it is 20 inches (51 cm) long.

    The bayonet is 19.75 inches (50 cm) long.

    From the back edge to the tip of the guard the bayonet is 3 inches (8 cm).

    The blade is 14.5 inches (37 cm) long.

    The saw blade is 10.75 inches (27.5 cm).

    The blade is 1 inch (2.5cm) wide at the ricasso, thickening to 1.25 inches (3.2 cm) towards the widest point of the blade.

    ~ Condition ~

    The bayonet is in good condition.

    It is missing the leather frog.

    The blade has some lines from touching the inside of the scabbard but is otherwise untouched with no nicks.

    The handle and fittings all fit very tightly and fit flush.

    The wood has a nice aged finish.
