Very nice dress bayonet made by WKC. Blade is a perfect step down type and both handle and grip are in equally pristine condition. The scabbard shows typical light crazing to the paint which we do like to see in original finishes. Brown Luftwaffe leather frog also remains in fine condition and shows only gentle signs of age wear. The bayonet troddel with this blue-yellow-blue color code indicates it was used by the 12th company or battery of its respective regiment. But the most interesting point of this fine bayonet is the marking to the back of the frog Fl.H.-Kdtr Jever. This abbreviation is for Fliegerhorstkommandant Jever which was an airfield in northern Germany built in 1936 for Luftwaffe use and which was heavily used throughout the war and is still in service today. Beyond being a pristine dress bayonet this piece can e tied to a very interesting corner of Luftwaffe history.
