Title Sawback Mauser bayonet, model 1905
Nationality German
Period 1917
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This piece is marked 'WAFFENFABRIK//MAUSER A.G.//OBERNDORF A.N.' at the forte, where it is also dated 1917 on the back edge. There is a nice brown frog with sadler's details punched into the leather work. This weapon was normally issued to Pioneer units in the Great War, but also to NCOs in infantry and artillery units.

The blade is clean, with some service wear and traces of old pitting in places, now cleaned. The walnut grips are age and oil stained, but in reasonably good shape. The scabbard has some dents to its back and age wear to its body.

I'd just like to thank you for the SS Buckle, this has to be one of the best items I have yet and am very happy with it.

Incredibly, I received your shipment today. Super fast delivery, I was expecting it on Saturday. The helmet was, as you said, 100%. The side cap is excellent also...
