Suhl' (R2 'rare' on the rarity scale).The second pattern butcher bayonet has the ears filed down on the crossguard, was made from 1915 until 1918 and came with a metal scabbard. This example is dated 1916 and with the flash guard. This is a beautiful specimen that would be difficult to beat. No bumps to the scabbard, ball undamaged, scabbard throat has inspection marks. Blade lovely with some minor marks, has been looked after all its life. This is scarce 2nd pattern 'Butcher' with the bonus of a rarer maker.
