    Default Is this a form of K98 bayonet?

    I've had this for a while, and I think I remember finding out it was a turkish made bayonet. I don't know anything else about it though.

    The only markings on it is a number "20338" It's sturdy as a rock. I think I could throw it off a bridge and it would damage the pavement below before it gets a scratch.

    Thanks for any info you guys can provide on this one!

    You are correct, this is a Turkish bayonet, specifically a model 1935. They are not "pretty" by any stretch of the imagination, but they would do the job they were intended for. Turkey was really strapped for cash,more so than other countries, after WWI. They converted countless bayo's from Germany, and any other country they could acquire them from, and some made for themselves. This being the latter.
