Original Item: Only One Available. German WWI Ersatz bayonets with their original 12" blades are very hard to find today, as many were officially shortened to 10", such as this example. The classic work by J.ANTHONY CARTER, GERMAN BAYONETS, VOLUME THREE published in 1992 is the complete work covering all types of WWI Ersatz bayonets and cherished by bayonet collectors everywhere.

Anthony Carter's Reference EB45 appearing on Page 109 is the model we offer here. Heavy Stamped steel two-piece ribbed hilt with split muzzle ring, with a 12 inch fullered blade, officially later shortened to 10", which bears imperial proofs on the spine. It is also marked 6759 on the cross guard. Comes complete with a correct all steel "FAG" style scabbard, which has also been shortened.

J. Anthony Carter died in 2001 but his four volume work is acknowledged as the supreme reference work on the subject most especially the Ersatz Volume (No.3) which was his great passion throughout his lifetime.

A nice Ersatz Bayonet Type EB45 complete with scabbard, ready to add to your collection!
