WW1 Gew98 German Mauser 1898/05 Quill Back Butcher Bayonet Scabbard & Frog BIG:
Here is a complete set of a German 1898/05 Butcher Bayonet for the Mauser Gew98 Rifle. The M98/05 came in two models.... with and w/o saw blade. This is the WITH SAW BLADE version made for Pioneer & Engineer troops. However, by 1917 the international political pressure on the German government to discontinue the use of the saw tooth version resulted in the saw teeth being removed from the Bayonets. This is one that has had that modification. The grip panels are great, the locking mechanism works, the frog leather is supple. The immensely long blade with bulbous point has its original point and unsharpened ( or possibly very lightly sharpened) factory edge. The only flaw I can mention is a small bit of pitting on the LH side of the cross guard ( see Pic). A must have item if you have a WW2 German Rifle. Wow..... what a combination that would be!!
