Original German WWII Mauser 98k Bayonet with Scabbard - Wooden Grips - Post War Reissued

Item Description

Original Items: Limited Quantity. In 1935 the German military introduced the K98k bolt action rifle or Karabiner 98 Kurz, as a replacement for the older GEW98 or Gewehr 98. A new, shorter bayonet was designed to go along with the shortened rifle. The K98 bayonet was officially named Seitengewehr 84/98 III or SG 84/98 III. The bayonet was designed as a close combat sidearm and utility knife that could also be placed on the tip of a K98.

The total length of the K98 bayonet was 15.2 inches, far shorter than the 20 inch long GEW98 bayonet. The blade was also straighter in shape and the hand guard was omitted. The K98 bayonet was carried in a leather frog, or Seitengewehrtragetasche, on the left side on the equipment belt in combination with the shovel and its carrier. The maker marks on k98 bayonets were stamped onto the top of the blade. On the reverse the batch number and suffix were stamped.

IMA has just found a small quantity of these desirable German WW2 Mauser S84/98 III bayonet bayonets, all with late war style wooden grips and correct all steel scabbards. These all show signs of post war use, and many have most of the markings removed. Some may only have a trace of a Waffenamt on the pommel, while others will show almost all of the markings, though also post war markings. In some cases the grips must be removed to see the markings, however these are definitely German WWII manufacture. These have all seen service, so they may have nicks in the blade, sharpening, and other wear from use.

Please note that we cannot honor any specific requests for markings on these. We have very few available.
