I sprung for one on E-bay. Seller is in Bulgaria. Three days until a shipping notice and then 13 days to my State. I'm pretty happy.
It is unissued. I've always thought these were neat with the longer length and blood grooves. I like the green handle too.
I'm fine with a Turkish bayonet on a Greek rifle.:biggrin:
I should add that this is anything but sharp. The entire edge is flat and about 1/32" measured with my Starrett rule.
Are German bayonets sharp edged or are they all meant for thrusting only?
I don't care either way, I like it and I'm glad I bought it. But like the FAL tubular bayonet, it is a one trick pony. ie-it's not a utility knife on it's off time.
