Product Description

A rare and interesting WWI German SG 1884/98 Sawback bayonet, that has had its point, on the blade, rounded in order to use as a training tool, for bayonet practice.

The bayonet was introduced in 1905 and was a replacement for the larger and heavier S98/05 ‘Butcher’ bayonet. The bayonet was produced with a sawback, as a tool to cut wood, but the Allied Propaganda portrayed as an example of German barbarity and the saw edge was removed later in the war. This example has survived because it was kept for bayonet training purposes.

This example has a metal flash guard, indicating that it was produced after 1915. The ricasso has the maker’s details DEUTSCHE MASCHINENFABRIK A.G. DUISBURG. The blade also has an inspectors mark, but no date. The construction was stopped in 1917.

Size: 40.3 cm (15 7/8 inches)
