German Model 189805 Butcher Bayonet with sawback high ears
A scarce WWI German Infamous Sawback Butcher Bayonet.
Officially referred to as the M1898/05 Sawback, it became a symbol of German barbarity during WWI. As a result the German Army issued an order to grind down the saw teeth, which makes surviving bayonets very scarce. This item was probably brought back by a British veteran as it was still complete.
A First World War Geman Bayonet in good condition all but the piece of wooden handle has decayed,it has a saw blade edge on one side and a sharp edge on the other but no scabbard,This is a beautiful relic from a period that nust never be forgotten,My reasons for selling are because my wife doesn't want it in the house
