Hello and welcome to Historum, highlander. I won't be of any direct help, but perhaps there are members here who can be. If not, you might try googling "militaria forums." There are several, and at least one has a whole section devoted to German blade weapons. Just out of curiosity, does your knife/bayonet have a wooden or bakelite grip?

Well im not exactly sure, the grip has broken off long before I got ahold of it but I've done some research on it and from what little information I've found it is most likely wooden

You can ask for help on ww2f.com. I'd suggest you post in the "Militaria" forum. (I'm a Trustee over there, feel free to name drop.)

What is there to be restored? The handle? In what condition is the knife? Maybe you could be able to repair it yourself if it isn't in very bad condition, and if it is just for your personal collection.

Re-enacting forums or militaria forums would be the best bet

In general, I find questions like this answered most easily and accurately by finding how much a similar item has sold on ebay. I definitely wouldn't pay more to have one restored than to buy a similar item on ebay.

Welcome to Historum and hope that you stay awhile.
