Fireman's Sawback Bayonet by FACK & SOHNE
Fireman's Sawback Bayonet by EPACK & SOHNE - Measuring 370 mm, with the scabbard on, this dagger features a 250 mm nickel-plated steel blade, with an unsharpened spine and a very sharp sawback edge on cutting edge, remaining bright and crisp, having a sharp tip. The blade has a full length fuller on both sides, the blade's ricasso maker marked E. Pack & Sohne Solingen, with the company's man swinging a hammer emblem. It exhibits light wear and faint scratches overall, common to frequent use, along with extraction and return to the scabbard, a natural shine, in better than very fine condition. The thick brown leather washer at the crossguard junction remains supple. The fittings in the handle and crossguard are nickel plated, with black synthetic grip plates retained by two nickel rivets, with light contact marks evident on the crossguard and pommel. The magnetic black metal scabbard is straight and appears without dents, however, it has seen extensive wear, with some of the original paint either scratched or worn off, in better than fine condition. Attached to the scabbard via the scabbard's frog stud is a beautifully supple, well-stitched black leather frog, accented by two rivets where it backs the scabbard's throat, with minor cracking and some discolouration, missing the additional rivet at the top on the reverse, the frog in very fine condition.
