Spanish CETME Bayonet

Bayonets have a special place in our hearts - because the only thing better than a rifle is a rifle you can also stab people with. The two bayonets here are for the CETME model C (7.62mm NATO) and L (5.56x45mm NATO) rifles. Outside of their frogs (no, not the kind of frogs you post on anime image boards), they're two completely different blades.

The model C's bayonet is a rather unusual design - It has what's called an un-fullered bolo blade. breaking it down, no fullering means that there isn't a groove on the flat portion of the blade for weight reduction, sometimes seen on heavier fighting knives like the USMC KA-BAR. The inward curve present on the body of the blade aids in it's usage as a "bolo", typically the name for a knife or machete used to clear thick brush in tropical environments. The double beveled grind, inward curve, and finger grooves on this knife makes it a surprisingly excellent chopper for a bayonet. This bayonet slots perfectly into CETME model C bayonet lugs & other CETMEs that share the same caliber & bayonet lug (such as the FR8).

The model L's bayonet is more of what you'd typically picture a bayonet to be. Styled after the U.S. M4 Bayonet, and with a longer profile. It features a diamond-shaped profile near the point for stabbing and the shorter side features a narrower edge grind if you'd like to sharpen it. The other side isn't actually an edge, but merely a grind to make the overall shape of the knife more suitable for stabbing. This bayonet is specifically made to slot into CETME model Ls, and due to it's slightly smaller ring, will not fit around the barrel of a larger caliber CETME.

Both knives are great on their own even if you're not a CETME enthusiast — Bayonets are well known for their usage as fighting knives and overall rugged construction, and have dozens of uses in bushcraft settings as well.

Greatest impulse buy ever.

I ordered this as soon as i saw it and I don't regret it one bit. I took this camping and it's great for peeling bark for kindling and for chopping small sticks. Overall it's a great knife and the only damage it had when i got it was a tiny roll in the blade but it was an easy fix especially since it needed sharpened.

Now I just need the right lug

It is perfect condition like it sat in the arsenal since the say it was made. And the bolo shape makes it a decent blade for bushcraft too.
