    K is the date code for 1934. G indicates 1935. These were the only date codes used with the S.84/98.

    "Maschinenhaus Ferlach – Kärnten, Ostmark – was the only manufacturer to use a logo with no name on their blades and scabbards in 1940."
    The pictured logo is a caligraphic letter M for Maschinenhaus.Similar designation was used on prewar M1895 production.

    Default Can anyone identify this bayonet's markings?

    Hi folks, I am Steve and I'm new to your site... I've made an introduction on the home page and this is my first post with you all...
    I recently acquired some WWI-2 items and one of the items is an 84/98 bayonet. However, none of the marking that I'm seeing on the item match what I am seeing in any of the archive that I've been able access. Hopefully, someone here can share their knowledge and help to identify what I have here? Sorry for the fuzzy pics!84-98_pic-2.jpg

    You have there a 43asw bayonet, as there is a 3127pp range and WaA519, You should look at opposite blade near crossguard, i asume there were wood grips. b.r.Andy
