EAST GERMAN AKM BAYΟNET

We have a limited quantity of East German Bayοnets available. All are in great condition and will come with a liberal coating of Cosmoline preservative.

Designed to be a robust multi-tool in the field, each bayοnet features a sawblade spine for processing small firewood and constructing shelters. More notably, a distinctive, oblong cut in the blade allows the sheath to be attached to create a pair of wire cutters — a functional and expedient feature, but a bit risky if you're not paying attention.

Of the stock available, roughly 25% is of the early "Type 1" configuration featuring a distinctive leather sheath and rounded Bakelite pommel. The remainder are the more common "Type 2" configuration, which appeared toward the end of the Cold War.

Besides the slight differences in appearance and materials, both Type 1 and Type 2 are functionally identical. The difference should largely be noted by collectors — if you just want to beat the crap out of your knife, Type 2 is the way to go, but if you want something with a little more "retro appeal," Type 1 is for you.

Features

  • Resilient, easy-to-sharpen, carbon-steel blade
  • Rubber anti-rattle scabbard "silencer"
  • Sawblade spine
  • Wire cutter functionality
  • Field-expedient bottle opener integrated into cross guard

Condition

All blades are in great condition. Bayonets will be coated with Cosmoline preservative. Mild rust spots may be present on the cross guard from storage. Photos are of the bayonets as is and should be a good indication of the condition you will receive.
