Description

~ WW1 German M1898 Old Pattern Mauser Gewehr 98 Butchers Bayonet ~

The Bayonet M1898/05 was the successor of the M1898 long bayonet. It had a much stronger design but was still very long. In the beginning of the Great War it came with high ears and without flash-guard. This is one of the earlier examples.

This particular example lacks any marks or stamps on the blade, making it quite unusual. It may be due to it being polished.

It does show marks of field usage and sharpening.

The bayonet is complete with its original steel scabbard.

The guard bears the mark “S”

The scabbard is made of black painted steel and is stamped with one imperial proof-mark.

This is a rare, highly collectable piece.

~ Dimensions ~

The blade length is 14.2 inches (36 cm) and the overall length of the bayonet is 19¼ inches (49 cm).

The bayonet in its scabbard length is 20½ inches (52 cm).

It weighs 830 grams.

~ Condition ~

The blade is in good condition with rust free.

The safety catch button works fine.

The grips are fine and remain undamaged.

The scabbard has surface rust and it will benefit a polish and repaint.

~ Postage ~

UK postage is £18, international at cost and it can be viewed in our shop.
