Original German WWI GEW 98 Long Parade Bayonet by WKC with Frog and Knot
Original Item: Only One Available. This 1898 Bayonet has very fine nickel plated hilt mounts; the plating throughout is still 100% intact. The mortise and lock work well.
The grip plates are of wood, being the 2nd Style. These plates have grooves cut into them to afford a good grip and are retained by a rivet and spanner.
The scabbard is of fine leather that has been decorated with the usual pattern of twin lines. The stitching in the rear of the scabbard is still intact, and only minor seam splitting has occurred near the top of the scabbard. The upper and lower scabbard mounts are nickel-plated and have scalloped edges. The lower mount is retained by staples on both sides, while the upper mount has but one. The leather on this example is in outstanding condition.
The long blade is about 21 inches in length, being in the quill back style. It is nice and bright throughout with a very fine nickel-plated finish. The blade is in nearly full mint condition. The reverse ricasso is stamped with the WKC Knights head logo used by Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Co during the Imperial era.
Also included is an original leather frog and genuine Imperial German sword knot both in very good condition.
