Here's a fine example of a S-98 bayonet by Eickkhorn. This was the first bayonet authorized for the Mauser in 1898. Super long blade measures 520mm!! This is not serialized, (Imperial examples never are! ) the riccasso is nicely stamped with the makers mark and location. Two piece hardwood grip plates show light honest wear. They are secure unslotted bolts that were serrated to the sides of the head ensuring they would not turn during assembly. The nuts are slotted and these required a special tool for removal. Hilt shows matching wear and use. The spine does not have a flash-guard. The scabbard is the std leather body with plated steel fittings. The lower obverse has a small dent, The frog lug is broken andf partly missing. The blade inserts nicely being secured with two runners secured with a front mounted screw.
