German S1898/05 Sawback 'Butcher' bayonet and scabbard, 1917 dated **SOLD**


This is the infamous 'Butcher sawback' bayonet as used by the pioneering troops of the Germany Army during WW1. Also carried by NCOs as a symbol of rank, the object of the sawback teeth was for clearance of light branches and brush, not for the inflicting of more horrific injury as wartime propaganda had made out. Full designation for this bayonet is S (Seitengewehr meaning side-arm) 1898/05 S n/A. 1898 being the year of introduction of the basic bayonet and 1905 the year of modification to that current form. S stands for the german word for sawback, and n/A stands for 'neuer Art', meaning 'new type' or 2nd type, due to reduced muzzle ears and flashguard above the grips. Production of this n/A bayonet ran from 1915 to 1917 only. This particular example is in very nice sound condition, with a very good scabbard, although painted black more recently.  The blade, point and sawback are very good, marked Waffenfabrik Mauser AG Oberndorf aN on the ricasso, and W17 on the spine with Imperial inspection marks to spine and pommel and scabbard lip. Very good wooden grips and release button. The scabbard is complete and undamaged with only one very light dent. A rare and desirable WW1 bayonet.
