VERY RARE, ALL MATCHING WW2 1942 DATES, NUMBERS & MANUFACTURER, WW2 Nazi German M 1884/98 3rd Version K98 Mauser Bayonet With Saw Back By ASW (E & F Hoerster Solingen) & Scabbard. BAYO 153 - BAYO 153

The German army removed combat saw back bayonets from service in 1917 due to their reputation for causing devastating injuries and the possible retribution that allied soldiers may carry out on any of their troops found in possession of a saw back. However during WW2 Nazi Germany did produce a small number of combat sawback bayonets for the K98 rifle. This example is the very rare to find M 1884/98 3rd version of the K98 rifle bayonet with saw back (see page 316 and plate 385 of German Sidearms & Bayonets 1740-1945 by Klaus Lubbe). The bayonet with clean fullered saw back blade has smooth wood grips and is stamped on the ricasso by the maker, 'asw' which is the Nazi German wartime code for E & F Hoerster, Solingen and faint '42' (1942 date). The reverse is stamped number '3706j'. The pommel is Waffenamt. It has its original steel scabbard with matching number at the throat. The scabbard also has matching manufacturer mark ‘asw’ and is also dated ‘42’ (1942). The tear drop end of the scabbard is Waffenamt. The price for this nicely marked, very rare variant bayonet & scabbard includes UK delivery. BAYO 153
