Picked one up in store. There was no leather strap on the bayonet or on the sheath. I was able to pick through the box and found one in very good shape. No notches in blade and only minor dings in the handle. Over all the bayonets in the crate were all in fair to good condition. Bought one to go with my new Romanian Wasr-10 rifle. Fits rifle fine without having to adjust muzzle brake. Very pleased with product for the price paid.
I didn't know what to expect with sight unseen army surplus, so I wasn't expecting much for $10. But, was pleasantly surprised! It was dirty, as expected, but cleaned up nicely with an SOS pad and a light coating of oil afterward. The leather was dry rotted but not needed. I used paracord in place of the knife leather because it forms a nice sturdy grip on the handle of the knife if used alone. The leather on the scabbard I assume was for attaching to a belt or pack, so not necessary for my purposes.
It fit nice an solid on my AKM, but I found that I had to screw my slant muzzle brake all the way in (past the locking point) for it to lock in. No problem. With the bayonet locked on, the brake can not work loose. When shooting at the range, I can quickly change it back to the standard slant (gas up and to the right), but I really do not expect much of an issue with muzzle rise to begin with. There were very slight dings on the blade which disappeared after a good sharpening. If I see another one of these at a gun/knife show (where I would not have to pay so much S&H) or next time I visit Smoky Mountain Knife Works on my next vacation, I defiantly want one or two more for my camp box or bug out bag! Sturdy, solid and the scabbard and knife working together as a wire cutter is an extra cool bonus!
