WW1 GERMAN 1898/05 MODEL BAYONET.
This model bayonet is oftener described as the butchers bayonet because of its huge clever like blade. Metal hilt shows age and the reverse of the pommel is stamped with imperial Waffen amp marks, the bayonet slot is complete but no longer functions, it probably just needs some oil to get it working properly again. The brown wooden grip plates are in perfect condition and are very fine quality. The blade is by Simson & Co Suhl and it is still in excellent condition, the spine is marked with a crown, W15 and other marks. The scabbard shows faint age pitting to the surface, it is also marked with a stamp to the upper reverse side but this is now difficult to decipher. EXC+
