WKC (king’s head and knight’s helmet) TM. This Jager Battalion bayonet with engraved dedication is very impressive and of fine quality. It is a real beauty and in superb condition for its age. It has a quill back edge and a wide fuller that runs about 2/3 of the length of its 19 ¼ inch blade, which is etched with beautiful German game and wildlife scenes as well as German hunting horns. The blade has an engraved dedication on the obverse of “Louenburgisches Junger Battalion No. 9”. The bayonet pommel and crossguard are polished steel/nickel-plated with black bakelite grip plates. The accompanying black leather scabbard has been lost to time. The overall length of this substantial bayonet is 24 inches. Truly a beautiful show piece!
