German Imperial Presentation Bayonet-this is a long model bayonet by
WKC that is unique in many aspects. It is a one of a kind presentation piece
awarded to the champion shooter of an Imperial motorized battalion. The photos
are what you will need to understand the prominence of this particular piece. The
hilt fittings are heavily engraved with an oak leaf motif. The plating on the hilt
fittings remains approx. 60% in place but does not detract from the overall
appearance. There is a unique button slot setup to attach the bayonet, the likes of
which I have never encountered before. The bakelite checkered grip plates are
perfect. There is a nickel silver addition to the obverse grip plate which represents
the exact unit that this bayonet comes from. This was meant to be a special piece
as the scabbard is a beautifully anodized version with 80% of the original
anodizing in place. And now the blade… this is a sight to behold, with the reverse
of the blade being fully engraved with the center motif being a shooting target
with crossed rifles. The obverse of the blade is also fully engraved and translates
loosely to the following “The best Shot from the 2nd Co. 2nd Prussian Motorized
Battalion”. The condition of the blade rates near excellent with just slight spots.
Best imperial presentation bayonet I have ever had the privilege of handling.
