    Imperial German WW1 1915 Dated Old Pattern Model 1898/05aA (aA alter Art) Sawback Bayonet Complete With Steel Scabbard. BAYO 516 - BAYO 516

    This is a 1915 dated 1898/05aA ‘butcher’ bayonet with no flash guard and extended muzzle ring ‘ears’. The old pattern bayonets were issued without flash guards but early on in the war it was found that the muzzle flash from the K98 rifle was causing the wooden grips to char or even be blown off. It was then decided to fit a steel flash guard along the top edge of the hilt. This example pre-dates the fitting of this flash guard and also as the longer ears or extensions of the crossguard. The blade carries the Simson and Co. Suhl trademark and the spine carries a crowned W over 15. Most of Simpson and Co’s production took place in 1915 as they then concentrated on the production of rifles as did Haenel and Schilling. See German Bayonets, The Models 98/02 and 98/05 by Anthony Carter, pages 86 and 87. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 516
