Title S84/98 bayonet by W&K, regimentally marked
Nationality German
Period 1927
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is a prime example of the new S84/98 bayonets ordered by the Weimar government in 1927. This one was made by Weyersberg & Kirschbaum as part of a production run ending in 1930. Both guard and scabbard are stamped 14/JR.15.30 (14th Company/15th Infantry Regiment, weapon no 30).

There are no serial numbers - this practice only came later, along with manufacturers' code letters. In this case, both blade and scabbard are stamped WuK and the back of the blade is stamped 27 along with a Weimar Waffenamt inspection stamp. The latter is also stamped on the back of the pommel, the top of the flash guard and the obverse of the cross guard.

The blade retains some 70% of the factory blue finish and has been carefully sharpened for combat. There are some oil stains to the fruitwood grips and a few dents to the back of the scabbard.
