Story about this piece don`t ends with M24CK (kinjali bayonet).
The knife by itself is made out of extremlly rare Kingdom Yugoslavia M98/05-95M (for the reworked Mannlicher M1895 - M95M).
That bayonet is made out of reworked M98/05 (made the paralel blade edge, changed crosspiece, shortened handle).
Mentioned bayonet is so rare that I as serbian collector searched for almost 10 years to find any in any condition.
Plus I saw 3 on the photos.
So this beautifull knife is made probably durring WWII, or later, most possible from trophys captured durring ocupatio of Kingdom of Yugoslavia.
