AK47 Bayonet?

Postby cody6268 » Wed Apr 24, 2019 8:19 pm

I see a lot of AK-47 bayonets, usually from Yugoslavia for not a whole lot of money. Been considering getting one to mess with, but I'm afraid these are crap. I had a two blade folding knife (actually, still do) made in the Soviet Union, and it was one of the worst knives I've ever owned. Anyone have any experience with them? I know it was the design that inspired our M-9.

I too would like to know about these.

I have one and a half year experience :D Both with AK47 and with AK74. What are you going to use, actually?
Keep in mind that the requirements for a bayonet are something very different from the requirements of a knife.

Mostly for the collection, but I plan to try using it a bit as a general utility knife. I also am pretty curious about the wire cutter.

You're talking about a bayonet for АКМ and AK74 - bayonet model 6X4. It's strong (in Bulgaria we have the word "foolproof"), but cutting properties is nothing special. Yes, cut fences and barbed wire. It is not the most convenient tool, but it works.
Keep in mind that this bayonet has been produced in many countries - Bulgaria, GDR, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, China, Poland, Romania and Yugoslavia. My observations are only for those produced in Bulgaria.
How much does this bayonet in the US?

Through most of the places I have seen, between $30 and $50.
