7/18/18 - This is an original WW2 K98 dress bayonet made by Christians. The blade is in beautiful condition with only a few small spots of oxidation/discoloration. There is also some light surface scratching - mostly from the scabbard. The blade hasn't been sharpened. The leather stopper is excellent and in tact. The handle is in great condition as well with spotty surface wear on the metal end. The red felt is still in tact. The scabbard has some spots of rust and significant paint loss. There's one small dent in the scabbard. The leather scabbard has surface wrinkling and some minor cracking. The stitching is in tact and original. Guaranteed all original and authentic.
