THIRD REICH LONG MODEL FIRE SERVICE BAYONET WITH SAWBACK BLADE BY MOST UNUSUAL MAKER AND COMPLETE WI
The hilt still retains all silver finish.The black celluloid grip plates are in fine condition. Mint and very impressive sawback blade, the reverse side is maker marked, E.SCHARFF KOBER & CO, PELIKAN FRANKFURT, and with the trade mark of a pelican sitting on its nest and feeding two baby pelikans, I have never seen this mark before and i am not sure if they were a maker or a distributer of edged weapons, it is most unusual to say the least.The scabbard retains 98% original black paint. Complete with black leather frog and police type portepee knot rather than the fire service type but as the fire service was a part of the police this could still be used and it has obviously been on this bayonet for a very long time. [Condition: Near Mint]
