A homepage for SG 84/98 Mod.III Bayonets, German Militaria, Imperial, Weimar, and other German Era Bayonet Collectors

Hello, and welcome to the K98k Bayonet Collectors Network (BCN) webpage. The BCN was started in November 1996 to network with collectors who have similar interests. Our web site was created for dedicated German bayonet and militaria collectors, and now includes members from around the world.

Since itís inception, the BCNís membership has grown immensely, and includes a group of collectors who study, document and trade militaria. The BCN doesn't charge for membership -- that would be against the spirit of the Internet. If you are interested in becoming a member please e-mail Derek Seltzer for further information. Happy collecting and thank you for visiting us.

This web site was created for dedicated K98K German bayonet collectors, German militaria collectors, and 3rd Reich and miscellaneous German blade collectors. The purpose of the K98k BCN is:

  • Bring German bayonet and militaria collectors from all over the world together on the Internet to share information at no cost
  • Increase militaria collector's knowledge on German bayonets
  • Serve as a collection center for data, production, and manufacturing information on German bayonets
  • Assist fellow collectors in improving personal militaria collections
  • Support the Camp Aliceville Prisoner of War Museum

    BCN Membership Policies

    The K98k Bayonet Collectors Network was established to bring bayonet and militaria collectors together for fun, and not extreme profit. Members are asked to have the highest ethical standards when dealing with fellow members.

    Our policies are:

  • A periodic roll call is made so to stay a member you must report in.
  • Members should recruit collectors with like interests.
  • Participation is MANDATORY. This may include reporting bayonet serial numbers/data, what you saw at a show, or just simply passing leads on to other members- that will be the key to our success.
  • Treat other collectors as you would like to be treated.
  • A member's word is as good as gold.
  • Give accurate detailed descriptions when grading.
  • Expand your knowledge on militaria and be ready to share that information.
  • Have fun!

    The ultimate goal of the BCN to become the largest and most respected militaria collectors organization in the world. The biggest bonus of being a member of the BCN is not the free membership (provided you live by the rules), but the leads and friendships you establish which will make your collection grow.

    In addition, we need the following information for our membership directory:
