    Its common that some of these bayos have been sharpened....they were used not only for killing but the soldier also needed it also to use for cutting or chopping...and any other related use.

    Hi Steve..leave it alone...the rust and corrosion is the only thing holding it together.

    Cheers Larry, the actual blade is quite strong, above that well the handles are shot and pretty much everything around it is like the blade rusty but strong, no doubting this one was dug up.

    Well, i decided to give it a light clean to remove the loose rust, in the end i thought a 24 hour soak in white vinegar would be my choice and here it is afterwards, very heavy pitting so no real id markings to go by however a little grease to the blade and that is it now, i soon became the owner of three bayos 2 k98`s and one mauser that had been "turked" i got that off a member here and love it.
