Mark,

Your clamshell is a very nice example of a Landzoll bayonet. The stag appears in nice condition & completely devoid of grip emblem holes. Probably a private purchase item as many of these shorter blade examples were privately bought by higher ranking Polizei personnel. The nice knobby pattern of the stag is a dead ringer for the 3 short blade WKC Polizei examples I own & its always nice to see other examples.

The blade shows the stiletto style with swedge, which was only used by WKC & occasionally seen on a few examples by JA Henckels. The scabbard fittings are consistent with WKC private purchase pieces in that they are non-scalloped.

What is the exact length of the blade? I ask because WKC made several lengths of short model bayonets.

A very nice example of a rarely seen bayonet, thanks for sharing it with us.

Billy G,

Thank you very much for your detailed response. I appreciate it.

I am in the process of buying this bayonet and I'm unsure of the blade length. But I'll follow-up here with the details as soon as I receive it.

Thanks again

Mark

Sorry I'm late following up, but the blade appears to be 9 3/4 or perhaps 10 inches long?

It is difficult for me to determine what this bayonet is worth because I cannot locate many examples for sale. Ones I have found vary in price from $1500.00 to $2800.00. Anyone know the approximate worth of this bayonet?

Thank you

Mark

Blade appears to be unsharpened and shows light runner marks. Leather grommet/pad is in great shape and firmly in place.
