WWII Converted Kar 98 Bayonet/Trench Knife
WWII Converted Kar 98 Bayonet/Trench Knife.
This very interesting piece was purchased by a colleague of mine in the 1960's. It combines a Kar98 bayonet and WWII Trench knife parts. The piece has been well worked and all done by hand which makes me feel it is period. The handle incorporates the SS runes and a Germanic style swastika which is normally found on Luftwaffe 1st pattern daggers. We will never really know why it was made and for who, but still a real talking point.
NB DUE TO THE NATURE OF THIS ITEM ADDITIONAL POSTAGE CHARGES WILL IN INCURRED.
