    Attached is a photo of the bayonets I have been collecting along with the WW1 and WW2 (and later) military rifles. From to to bottom are:

    1. Japanese Type 30 for the Arisaka TYpe 38 6.5mm rifle- authentic bayonet and scabbard, but unknown manufacture date (repro frog on the scabbard)

    2. 1944 German bayonet for the K98k - Russian capture during WW2

    3. Bowie type bayonet for the Enfield No-4 Mk1 - unknown history

    4. Spike bayonet for the Mosin Nagant 91/30 - unknown history

    5. 1943 bayonet for the M-1 Garand (10" blade) had been chromed for parade duty, repro scabbard

    6. Replica 1942 bayonet for the WW2 service 1903's or Garand's, 16" long blade

    7. Replica 1917 bayonet for the Eddystone M-1917, 17" long blade

    8. Used military surplus bayonet for the M-16 (fits well on my SP-1 AR)

    9. Russian surplus (but appears un-issued) bayonet for the Ak-47

    What does that K98 bayonet say on the blade?

    If it has a loop on it for going over the muzzle then its not for the k98. The Germans didn't put the loops on.

    Looks like a standard Yugo for the 24/47.

    Nice group of edged weapons there. :)

    FYI:
    Your Garand blade is a cut-down M1905 bayonet (second production period, 1942 and 1943) that was originally 16 inches long. Notice that the fuller (or "blood groove") runs all the way to the blade tip. Nothing wrong with that though - the military cut down a LOT of those bayonets.

    Thats what I was thinkin too.

    Sometimes people think that preduze 44 (or whatever that is on the side) stands for produced in 44' but its actually a factory in the former Yugoslavia.

    Nice bayonet collection though.

    Well, the stamping on the blade at the hilt says "OPENYSERE" and then a "44".

    It sure fits the K98k, but I googled "K98k bayonet" and found a web site that confirms what you have stated, no loop! Live and learn.

    Nice grouping!

    No. 3 is a Yugoslavian M1948 bayonet. It was made for use with the bewildering variety of Mauser 98 type rifles that Yugoslavia had on hand after World War II (including many ex-German Kar 98k's). The Cyrillic marking (ПРЕДУЗЕЋЕ), was used until 1953, when they switched to the Latin marking (PREDUZECE). In English, it means "factory" or "enterprise." Factory 44 was the Kragujevac plant. The belt frog is the correct Yugoslavian frog.

    No. 9 is a Romanian AKM Type I bayonet, a clone of the Russian bayonet. Only Romania used the wraparound leather belt frog. All of the other Warsaw Pact countries used the clip-on belt loop. If you look under the insulator, the Romanian scabbard still has the wire hook for the clip-on belt loop. Romanian bayonets are occasionally encountered with Romanian-made clip-on belt loops, but not many.

    marysdad:

    Thank you for the info. You do seem to know your bayonets. I have book-marked the website and will spend some time there to get a bit smarter about the bayonets.

    I am disapointed that the k98 bayonet is really a Yugo. Oh well!
