Original German 19th Century Kingdom of Prussia M.1810 Hirschfänger Sword Bayonet
Original Item: Only One Available. These are quite rare! We just received this very rare bayonet out of a large European Collection. Intended for use as a Short Sword as well as a bayonet, this Hirschfänger bayonet was used with the Prussian Infantry Flintlock musket not unlike the British Baker Rifles. Designed to hang alongside the rifled barrel fitted with a substantial bayonet bar the bayonet is numbered 433, showing that it was custom fitted to one Flintlock Rifle in particular.
The bayonet features a single edge 18 inch blade with heavy brass hilt, with an overall length of 23 1/2 inches. This design is based on Hirschfänger (Deer Catcher) long hunting daggers in use in the German area for centuries. There is a similar bayonet with a later 1860 modified blade in THE BAYONET BOOK by Watts and White page 112.
Extremely rare and unmodified, in fine collectible condition!
