This pattern was developed in Java; from Indonesia it spread to the southern Philippines and is the common warrior blade of the tribes in Mindanao and Sulu. The waves on the blade can represent either a snake or the flames of a fine.

Just a SWAG.

Even then it was not sharpened like a knife blade and would still appear relatively dull. Points are a different matter. Points were sharp. Training bayonets have very noticeably rounded tips. Both the bayonets pictured have sharp points, not training examples.
