    Bounce of 5 german bayonets

    Hi all experts

    I got a bounce of 5 german bayonets

    One S 98/05 Aa butcher blade with leather scabbard

    Three S 98/05 Na butcher blade with steel scabbard

    One S 71/84 with leather scabbard

    Most of them not in best shape

    But all of the scabbard have the original frog

    All of the leather is werry stiff and fragile

    Two of the S 98/05 have bakelite grips?
    Have not seen this before, but looks as original fittet.
    The other two wooden grips

    I have tryed to google bakelite grips
    For S 98/05 with no result.

    Anyone knows about this?

    Why not post photos of what you asking about because it makes visualising much easier if people can see what you are talking about.

    It sounds like you are saying that you have bakelite grips on a WW1 Germanicon Butcher bayonet?

    Yes yes 😀
    Photos will come.
    Just need too get home from Christmas holiday 🎅
    But yes. Two ww1 bayonets with bakelite grips.
    I never before own any of These.
    But I can understand that bakelite grips is
    Unusual.
    But let us wait for photos

    I don't think so. The butcher bayonet was phased out at the end of WWI. I checked Bayonets of the World and came up empty on bakelite grips which started use in 1937 on the K98icon bayonets.

    OK
    Sorry for taking your time.
    I have my son to take of the grips of the two
    Bakelite bayonets.
    It is werry well made. But fake.
    Looks like a cast. Both pairs have same
    Number on the back. And simulare marks from
    The cast die. The bayonets is from different
    Makers.
    I will post photos of the five bayonets. When I
    Got time.
    But dont waist any more time on bakelite grips.

    Lets still have a look at them if and when you can, please.

    I do have 2 or 3 Butcher bayonets myself which I'll try and dig out.

    Are the bayonets real with replacement grips? If so, you can get wooden grips, also reproductions but I've found from experience they are not all that well made for fit. I only have three butcher blades, one normal, one sawback with replacement grips and one ersatz sawback which is one of my best bayonets in my collection. I'm still looking for one with the sawback removed.

    All the bayonets are real.
    But I think I leave them with the “fake grips”
    Repro wooden fake grips are still fake grips.
    I will post photos when I have the time.
