Started to get into it years ago but my $ was too tight for what the market was then. Just never got back to it….
If u have a closeup of a German gewehr one (WWI only) pls post it !
If you look at the second picture the 2 bayonets with similar wooden grips would be appropriate for most of the German rifles from the WWI. One is the butcher blade model and the other is called a saw back bayonet. It has saw teeth opposite the blade. These were issued to Pioneer units and they used them to cut brush. However, when used in combat they were known to give a really nasty wound. It's said that the British would execute Germans prisoners on the spot who had these. The five on the right hand side of the first picture are German bayonets used in the WWII. I have been collecting bayonets for over 50 years. Gun shows used to have boxes of them that you could pick through. Several I even bought at yard sales.
