During the First world war bayonet, German had replaced the long bladed weapon. I must say that there has been a change in fashion trends in uniform. Decoration to the uniform in the form of a knife, dagger or bayonet became "fashionable" attributes of a military uniform.

For this reason, compared to other armies, the German army was widespread trench knives.

There are about 27 different designs short bayonets of the First world, which was officially adopted parts of the German army and had the stamp of public acceptance.

I would Like to mention the model of the "ersatz bayonet", which has the function of joining the rifle (primykanie daggers).
