Steve1871 Posted 15 June , 2019 Share Posted 15 June , 2019 I gave these two KS 98 bayonet's. I know there were/ are a lot of " PARADE" KS 98 bayonet's, even a longer parade or dress version made into the Second World War . That said, my 2 are , I believe, Actual Great War issue/ used. The bad part is that both were cleaned up and polished in the past. NOT CHROMED or NICKLED. Had to delete several pic's. These are all the pic's at the moment. Originally had pressed leather grip's with 3 steel pins to secure them.Later, replacement grip's were of wood, with 2 screw's. I read that on the Western Front, I think? It said starting in 1914 or 1915, not sure , that Germany still produced these KS98 bayonet's for war time use, producing them new with wood grip's My wood grip one is dated 1914 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
