Have yet to sharpen the one I bought, but I can say that the mounting channel in the handle required some fitting with a metal file to get it to seat properly on my original G98. Attachment channel was just a hair too small when it arrived and would not fit on the rifle at first, but I got it to work by just shaving a little bit out. Other than that it seems like a decent quality reproduction. As I said, I still have yet to try sharpening it though, may update here if I have any issues with that.

I have purchased 3 of these quality bayonets. They fit my K98 Russian Capture, and my Yugo straight out of the box. I ordered the last one for my best friend, and he said it fits his K98 RC fine. These bayonets are large, fearsome, and have a visible shock value when attached to a Mauser. At the present deal price, they are a steal. Get one while they last.

Nine years ago I purchased two M1917 bayonets. I gave one to my brother and kept the other one. Mine was a disappointment. It did not fit without quite a bit of work. This time I was pleased with the 98 bayonet. At first it was a bit tight, but with oiling and cleaning it fit well and required no altering. It is well made and finished.

just received this great item today. I was really pleased with the quality of the finish. The bayonet will fit a cz 24, a k98, and a 1912 with no problem. Just great!
