Product Description

A rare and desirable WWI Prussian Model 1898 Short Bayonet with a sawback blade.

The bayonet were only issued to engineer troops or NCOs. As the War progressed, stories of German barbarity and the mistreatment of Germans prisonners found in possession of one, made the German Command order that the sawback were ground down. Therefore surviving examples are rare.

The bayonet is made by V.C. Schilling of Suhl. It has the Prussian inspection stamp of 1914. The pommel has the eagle head shape, with the eye being the retaining button. The handle is made of wood. Condition is good, but there is age toning to the metal parts.

Size: 40 cm (15 3/4 inches)
Weight: 553 g
