I have a nickel plated 1898 Quillback that was manufactured by WK&C. It has no other markings on it at all nor does it fit a 98K the slot is to small. I have had this for 30 years and still know nothing about it other then what it is. Any help would be welcomed.


Thank you Kevin.

Being nickel plated, and not military marked, it is a "Walking Out" or Parade sidearm. Since it doesn'y fit a rifle, I assume it was a factory second. Therefore plated, and put up for private purchase. The only other country to officially adopt these was Peru. As far as I know. They were used, and issued many other places. Awsome sawback, with ersatz scabbard!

Peru ordered this bayonet as a Model 1909! The rifle as well. Usually in good shape. Never saw WW1! They have 5 digit serial numbers on crossgaurd the usually match the one on the frog stud. The pommel flat has a Peruvian coat of arms. 2nd is Turkey's model of 1903! It is the same Sg98 blade but a bit thicker by ricasso. It has a large Turkish M90 type quillion & crossgaurd. Lastly I have a Czech used one, new slotted press stud added, with Czech issue numbers on pommel. All are in the Sg98 scabbards.
