WW2 German K-98 Dress Bayonet by Eickhorn with Bakelite Grip and Black Leather Frog
Here on offer is a great example of a German K-98 dress bayonet by Eickhorn and is complete with its original black leather frog.
All the hilt fittings seem to have lost most of their nickel-plated finish and now have a bright slightly grey finish to the metal.
The “birds head’ shaped pommel still has a functioning bayonet catch, when the ‘eye’ of the bird is pushed.
The black Bakelite grips are in mint condition and held in place by two metal rivets that have a light rust pitting to the finish.
The crossguard is the swept forward quillion type.
The plain single fullered nickel-plated blade is in mint condition.
One side of the ricasso is marked with the 1935 through 1941 Eickhorn maker‘s logo, the “seated squirrel with sword” and the lettering:
It comes complete with its black Japanned steel scabbard, that shows signs of surface pitting, but retains most of its black finish.
Fitted to the scabbard is its original stiff black leather frog that is actually in good order with all the stitching place. Its overall finish is indented and you can see this has been fitted to this bayonet all its life as it shows the impression in the leather of the Bakelite grip.
This is just a wonderful genuine example still with its frog and mint blade.
The blade measures 9.9” (25cm) and the bayonet itself is 14.6” (37cm) long.
It weighs 470g.
