    Definitly an early AK bayo. Smells Russian.
    A better/closer/clearer pic of the stamps (as in pic 2) may help to zero in that country made it.

    I'm not saying that it's not an ak47 bayonet but my first thought was a Swedish model 94 carbine bayonet.

    Definitely not a Swede 94/14 bayonet.,which for one thing has a slightly recurved and button ended quillion......that one has none.

    The AK 47 bayonet was inspired by the Swede 94 bayonet.
    "The AK47 Bayonet

    The AK47 assault rifle was introduced during a period in history when the bayonet's future was in debate. In the decade following the outbreak of the Second World War, most of the major powers produced an infantry rifle without the ability to mount a bayonet. Without a single exception, every one was redesigned to accept a bayonet or or replaced with a rifle that did within a few years of its introduction. The AK47 was Russia's entry in this debate, being designed without the intent that it mount a bayonet. Having a change of mind, rather than add a bayonet lug, the Russians opted for a bayonet that did not require one. The AK47 bayonet hilt borrows heavily from the Swedish M1914 bayonet, another example where the bayonet was added as an afterthought. Both the AK47 bayonet and scabbard were patterned after Russia's first knife bayonet, the M1940 bayonet used with the 7.62 mm. Tokarev SVT–40 self–loading rifle. Although adequate, the dual muzzle-ring arrangement made the AK47 bayonet awkward, at best, for any other use."

    I have one of this type and just the phenolic type grips and no bayonet catch. At $5 bucks no problem. Went to sharpen it and due to the very thick heavy plating on had to resort to the heavy grit el cheapo stones to get through the plating. I have to admit that after that went to a Norton oil stone and that blade took some work but it is very sharp. The newer AK bayos have a plating on them but the blade is only ground on one side. The opposite side is flat. More like chisel. Frank
