Title K98 Eickhorn dress bayonet
Nationality German
Period c 1936
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is the standard walking out bayonet of the Third Reich. There was a shorter version as well. The Eickhorn squirrel and sword mark are on the base of the blade. These were private purchase items, which the soldiers could wear when they were walking out from the barracks with their girls, etc.

The condition of this piece is almost faultless. There is a little crackelure to the paint on the scabbard and a few scrapes to the paint here and there, with some wear to the ball of the scabbard. It has its original leather washer.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

testimonials

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
