Found another Type 58 bayonet today and thought I'd show some side-by-side comparisons of the two. Some interesting differences probably due to typical North Korean "quality":

Left side


Right side


Handles


Closer look at arsenal markings


Frog attachments


Side view of attachment


Serial numbers on the handles


Top of scabbards


Ends of scabbards


Excellent craftsmenship from the Peoples Factory of Excellent Bayonet Construction. :lol:

They will still put a hole in somebody when mounted to a rifle and a determined soldier. So in that respect, the quality is good enough.

True that. Like they say - a 100 year-old gun (or poorly made knife) will kill you just as dead as one made yesterday. :neutral:

I did and have no idea what the odds are of that within a month or so of the last one. I should've bought a lottery ticket, played a slot machine, and placed 50 sports bets after I left. :neutral:
