Title SS double-etched dress bayonet
Nationality German
Period c 1939
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is a WKC product, engraved at the forte with the knight's head and Solingen logo. The etching on the blade is deeply cut and has a blued background to both sides. It is marked on one side 'AA1' for the 1st Reconaissance Battalion of the regiment (the latter is not specified). A similar bayonet can be found in Detlev Nieman's bayonet book.

The condition is excellent throughout. However, the scabbard and frog show substantial age wear with some loss of paint to the former, especially on the reverse. The knot can be sold with the item, but it is an accurate modern copy (and is elsewhere on my site).

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

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.
