Modern sawback bayonet, as used by the Austrian army. Despite the myth, they function just like regular bayonets and were never banned by the laws of war.
Stosstruppen waiting for the assault in their shelter. Notice the different kinds of bayonets issued by the Prussian army. At the end of the war, the german army issued a new kind of saw-bayonet causing more damage to the human body than the classic ones. The soldiers caught carrying such bayonets were’nt taken prisoner but were horribly mutilated. Generally, experienced soldiers managed to provide new recruits with normal bayonets and told them to throw away their saw-bayonet.
The saw-bayonet thing is mostly a myth, from what I understand. Sawback bayonets weren’t designed to cause more injury, but rather so they could double as a woodcutting tool, and were generally only issued to engineers. They were also used by most Central European countries in that role, not just Germany, and were first issued in the mid 19th century.
The controversy was mostly invented by British newspapers in 1917, and there’s no indication the actual soldiers of the time cared.
I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for whatever the hell that is.

Damn, nice set of teeth you got there.
We haven’t seen any tourists or researchers from the future.
Therefore time travel will probably never be invented.
Wouldn’t it stand to reason if there were time tourists they’d be keeping a low profile? Considering their existence depends in them not fucking up their own timeline.
