The German Military had a long history of using special bayonets when they were off duty but in uniform and it became even more popular during the Weimar Republic.
These sidearms were worn by enlisted men and junior NCOs.
These privately purchased bayonets were never intended for combat use. The Nazi organisation liked uniforms and parades because it had an attraction to many Germans and the edged weapons became a natural ceremonial contribution to their uniforms.
These bayonets came in two lengths, a shorter for length for NCO and a longer for enlisted men.
These bayonets had often rifle mortises but could not be fitted to rifles like K98. The spring-loaded pommel- button worked normally, but the track for the bayonet lug was under-dimensioned and often filled in with cloth of fitting colour.
A bayonet knot, Troddel, finished the bayonet off. Frogs were black or for Luftwaffe brown.
There are numerous types and variations of these bayonets. There are sanctioned types and there are private purchased bayonets.
The fire brigade had a type with double cross guard which was impossible to mount on any rifle and the Nazi Police used bayonets with stag-horn scales and the German Eagle with the swastika mounted on top
