    Default SVT-40 Bayonet market find

    I just picked up this SVT-40 bayonet at my local market.

    At approx $35 both buyer and seller were happy. I own a mint refurbed example already but I liked the early scabbard, battered as it is.

    The bayonet has seen a second life, maybe as a fighting knife, but perhaps more likely in someone's kitchen or garden.

    I'm normally against 'improving' collectables but I might try and clean this up with a bit of WD40 and linseed oil.

    These bayonets are being offered for ridiculous money these days so I couldn't pass it by.

    I assume this is already a sharpened and well used bayonet. oiling would help.b.r.Andy

    I would not consider cleaning & oiling as 'improving' but rather as normal maintenance. Nice find!
