*As Found* WWII Matching Numbers Dated 1941 Africa Korps D.A.K. K98 Bayonet By ‘asw’ (E&F Horster Solingen) and Webbing Frog. 21848. - 21848
DAK is an abbreviation for the Afrika Korps (German: Deutsches Afrikakorps), a famed German World War II unit. The German Africa Corps, commonly known as Afrika Korps, was the German expeditionary force in Africa during the North African campaign of World War II. First sent as a holding force to shore up the Italian defence of its African colonies, the formation fought on in Africa, under various appellations, from March 1941 until its surrender in May 1943. The unit's best-known commander was Field Marshal Erwin Rommel. The Afrika Korps formed on 11 January 1941 and one of Adolf Hitler's favourite generals, Erwin Rommel, was designated as commander on 11 February. Originally Hans von Funck was to have commanded it, but Hitler loathed von Funck, as he had been a personal staff officer of Werner von Fritsch until von Fritsch was dismissed in 1938. The Seitengewehr 84/98 was the most widely issued German bayonet of the Second World War. It was used in conjunction with the Karabiner 98k rifle. It was a development of a design which had first been introduced before the First World War, for use by machine-gunners and cyclists. Initially these bayonets were produced by modifying obsolete Model 71/84 bayonets. However, during the First World War production of new S84/98 bayonets took place, as they were simple to manufacture and used less metal than the standard S98 bayonet. The adoption of the K98k rifle in 1934 prompted the manufacture of quantities of an improved S84/98. Stamped to the ricasso with ’41asw’ (manufacture date 1941 by E&F Horster Solingen) & ‘a1862’. The grips are undamaged, as is the blade. The metal scabbard is numbered ‘1862’ and has a waffenampt stamp. The webbing frog is stamped to the rear. The stitching and stud are intact. The price for this scarce matching numbers set includes UK delivery. 21848. (Box 1)

British Enfield Yataghan P1856/58 Sword Bayonet and Leather Scabbard. ED 2341. - ED 2341
The P1856 Enfield short rifle and sword bayonet were approved on the 24th January 1856 and according to the pattern book at Enfield was intended for issue to the Rifle Brigade and Sergeants of Infantry, though later other units used these weapons. See page 304 & 368 of Watts & White for reference. From 1858 the use of more machinery enabled closer tolerances to make bayonets and in doing so made the bayonets interchangeable, instead of bayonets being individually fitted to a particular rifle. This bayonet has a slightly longer leaf spring for the locking bolt and was secured by a screw and not as previously with a rivet on the P 1856 bayonet. Blade length: 22 ¾ “, overall: 28”. The blade bears the War Department mark and the crossguard has ‘2398’ stamped to it. The grips are made of chequered black leather held by steel pins. The scabbard is made of black leather with steel top mount and chape, all stitching is intact *pitting to the frog stud*. The price includes UK delivery. ED 2341. (Bucket)

British Lancaster Sword Bayonet Post 1855 British Army Sappers, Miners & Engineers 1855 Pattern Lancaster Rifle Pipeback. 20821:22. - 20822
British Sappers and Miners Units adopted an oval barrel rifle in 1855 and produced their own distinctive bayonet with a Falchion or pipe backed blade. The leather scabbard had brass fittings. After 1857 the Sappers and Miners were renamed the Engineers, so the blade is sometimes called the Engineers Bayonet. After removal from Engineer service, they became a side arm particularly for the Medical Corps. Early examples had a leaf spring secured by a rivet but post 1858 the springs on these bayonets were secured by a screw. The British Government ordered quantities of these bayonets from German manufacturers & both the London and Birmingham trade (see pages 303 & 367 No 748 of Watts & White). This is an excellent original example of the 1855 Lancaster bayonet. It has the correct 24” pipeback blade which has just light staining consistent with age, brass cross guard with muzzle ring and brass pommel with correct flat steel spring bar with post 1858 retaining screw and push button which works as it should. The blade is marked by Manufacturer R & W. Aston of Birmingham. There are visible dates and marks ‘2, 1864, G.A, 101, 5, 2, 29, 10 – See images. Its original black hard leather grips are intact and correctly secured by rivets. The bayonet measures 29” overall. The price includes UK delivery. 20821:22. (Bucket)

WWI Dated Imperial German 1898/05 Butcher Knife Bayonet Scabbard by Manufacturer Luneschloss. 21750. - 21750
The Bayonet M1898/05 would succeed the M1898 long bayonet. It had a much stronger design but was still very long. In the beginning of the Great War it came with high ears and without flash guard. The M1898 ‘New Pattern’ was missing the ‘ears’ and is characterised by the addition of a thin sheet of steel as muzzle fire protection on top of the grip. The original German First World War butcher blade bayonet was used with the Mauser Gewehr 98 (GEW 98) the standard issue service rifle of Imperial Germany. This example was manufactured by ‘Luneschloss Solingen’ (The Peter Daniel Lüneschloss Waffen-Fabrik company was founded in 1810. It originally began as a cutlery manufacturer but started the production of edged weapons in 1848. They marketed their own etched and engraved: weapons, cutlery and tableware. Lüneschloss registered in Solingen on May 10, 1881. The company continued to manufacture edged weapons after the end of the first world war) as stamped on one side of the ricasso. The top of the spine is stamped with a date code ‘W 16’ (1916) and inspection stamps. The top of the pommel has two further inspection stamps. The wooden grips are held with two studs are good and intact. The correct steel scabbard is showing signs of age related wear with an inspection stamp to the top of the throat. See ‘White & Watts’ The bayonet Book, pages 114 & 123, No 267. The price includes UK postage and packing. 21750. (Box 2)
