bayonets

I started life as a bayonet collector aged 12! A fascinating subject and one that, unlike swords, is still within the reach of the average beginner collector. This field is extremely well-covered by good reference books, mostly in English (such as The German bayonet by John Walter and British & Commonwealth bayonets by Ian D Skennerton & Robert Richardson), and tends not to be readily plagued with reproduction items. As a subject, it's an excellent introduction to the restoration and care of edged weapons.

militaria item RFV Mauser bayonet, fixable combat variety
- German
This rare little beast, made by Paul Weyersberg of Solingen (marked at the forte), has hard rubber grips with white metal rivets and the initials 'R.F.V.' (for Reichsfinanzverwaltung) stamped on the crossguard. These were carried by the Zollschutz, German border customs officials. It is based on the old KS98 of the imperial era.

militaria item Mauser bayonet, model 98/05, A.a., Alex Coppel
- German
This weapon was developed initially to replace the model 98 pipeback bayonet and, like its earlier model, did not have a steel flashguard on the back of the hilt and, furthermore, had little extension wings on either side of the residual muzzle ring. The later models had a steel flashguard and usually a steel scabbard as well.
