A Wehrmacht Bajonett für K98 by Carl Eickhorn of Solingen 1938. The K98 Bayonet was designed for the German Wehrmacht standard service Karabiner 98 kurz (7.92x57mm Mauser cartridge) bolt-action rifle - 1935. The single edged, single fullered, blued blade on this one look great! The blued panels continue to have a nice and dark finish. The fit is perfect. It is maker marked and dated “S/172" (Carl Eickhorn) to the reverse, and “5034" to the obverse and “36” to the spine. The blade rates a solid Exc++. It shows the commonly seen surface scratches from the runners (mostly towards the tip), A slightly dulled tip and witness marks where the runners have rested for 80 years. The steel based, black anodized scabbard looks good. It is marked matching the blade perfectly. The single side screw remains intact. There are a couple bumps and scuffs. The scabbard sits securely up against the hilt. The brown wood grip plates are in good condition! They show wear with wee hits and dents but no chips, cracks or splits! The button continues to work well. most of the factory bluing is lost to time. This piece is profusely inspection stamped as one would expect. This one comes with a nice frog that is unmarked.
