Germany WW2 Mundlow K98 bayonet made in 1936 by Mundlow & Co. Early pre-war wood grips; original metal scabbard included. Scarce pre-WWII type in great overall condition.
Original WW2 era German bayonet for “Karabiner 98K” Mauser bolt-action rifle. Scarce pre-WW2 manufacture – made in 1936 by Mundlow & Company of Magdeburg (Mundlos AG), as indicated by the number code S/244. This pre-WW2 blade numbering system of letters-and-numbers codes was used from 1934 to 1937 to keep the maker’s identities secret. Before the war Mundlow & Co was manufacturing sewing machines and their spare parts; the experience and expertise of this precise machinery maker certainly show through the excellent quality of this bayonet.
The bayonet comes with original blued steel scabbard serial number 7941 on the scabbard’s throat. There is no frog. The bayonet is only slightly used; the original blunt factory edge been lightly re-sharpened; most of the original factory finish on the blade is remaining; original pre-war specimens are very scarce this nice and complete.
The bayonet is about 15-1/4” / 38.8 cm overall; the blade is about 10″ / 25.5 cm long. The blade retained 95% of its original gun-blue finish; the tip is intact. Original and correct for pre-war manufacture wood grips are in great condition with just a few contact marks on the wood (no cracks or chips). Ricasso is stamped S/244. on one side and the production series number 1501 / b on the other. Bayonet release button is in perfect working order; it’s stamped 1501 as well. The Waffenamt on the bayonet’s butt is Wa211; scabbard’s tip is stamped with what looks like number 86.
Almost 80 years after it was made this Germany WW2 Mundlow K98 bayonet and its original scabbard are in 100% serviceable condition still; pre-WW2 specimens are scarce this nice and complete. Don’t miss your chance to add it to your collection!
