    As Andrej indicated there were only a handful of firms that manufactured late war behoerden bayonets. Three or fours companies only and Hörster was responsible for the vast majority of the pieces produced. Over time you can become familiar with the appearance and traits of the various producers. The shape and finish to the pommel, the machining of the blade, ricasso, and the crossguard are all distinctly Hörster. As is the frog hanging hook.

    What is the serial number on your matching 44asw if I might ask?
