B1171 - WWII German K98 Bayonet & Scabbard - Hörster


The German K98 bayonet was introduced in 1934 with mass production beginning in 1936. The design was taken from the S84/98 bayonet of 1915 and was standard issue to every EM / NCO to be worn suspended from the belt by means of a leather frog.

This is a good solid example of an early war German WWII K98 bayonet. The bayonet has a good pair of undamaged Bakelite handles and the steel blade is sharp with a fine original blue and clearly stamped with the maker name Hörster. The scabbard is dated 1943 and stamped fcc, the code assigned to Metallwarenfabrik Hermann Nier, Beierfeld bei Schwarzenberg.
