The longer of the two is a German m1898/05 bayonet, used during the First World War with the famous 8 mm. Mauser Gewehr 98. The ricasso marking stands for Actieneschellschaft vormals Frister & Rossman Berlin (Holding Company formerly Frister & Rossman, Berlin), the contractor who produced the bayonet. Frister & Rossman were a manufacturer of sewing machines that assembled bayonets during the War. The blade blanks were supplied by other blademaking firms. Some came from J.A. Henkels and carry their conjoined twins trademark on the opposite ricasso. If unsharpened, it would bring in the $150-$200 range pretty easily.

The bayonet cannot be abolished for the reason, if for no other, that it is the sole and exclusive embodiment of that willpower which, alone, both in war and everyday life, attains its object.General M. I. Dragomirov
