Product Description

A great example of a rare Imperial German Model 1898 alter Art (Older Pattern) bayonet, a private purchase item and only worn when walking out.

Like the standard pattern it has a metal hilt with wooden grips and sweepback quillon on the crossguard. It also has a long blade and leather scabbard, with white metal fittings. Contrary to the standard bayonet, this example is a lot more decorative, with bright nickel hilt fittings and a acid etched decorated blade.

Crucially, it is not a proper bayonet and despite having a rifle attachment groove, it doesn't have a working locking bolt. It does have a false button, so that it looks like a normal bayonet. The blade also lacks the fuller and pipeback blade and is single edged as well as flat sided. There are no maker's details or inspection and proofmarks. The bayonet is very good, but there is some spotting to the blade.

Size: 69 cm (27 1/8 inches)
Weight: 592 g
