Israeli Sapper Bayonet

Hi,

Interesting photo of an Israeli sapper using an M70 bayonet for mine clearance. You can see the tzadik on the blade.

I was finally able to find Kalashnikov bayonets used by Tsahal, a Hungarian and a Yugoslav.

Have you cross checked if these are legit “zahal marked”?
Those stampings looks suspecious to me. There were a ton of these that were faked from a source in Croatia and a guy in Russia is selling em faked and over priced!

Observe pictures. Left is legit, right one fake.
And legit ones are mostly found with non matching numbers.

What do you think of this bayonet, with the same number, for sale on Ebay, at an exorbitant price, sold by Croatian seller?

The logo is the same as the one you present. Difficult to tell the difference ???

This is really interesting - take a look at these pics. I was once offered that exact bayonet from the link on Ebay that you present. Same serial number. It comes from a person in Croatia that gradually has build up a reputation of selling faked items. For instance: Romanian 6x3 with faked white painted iraqi numbering and Russian faked black painted bayonets to resemble their training bayos. I can present pics of these examples.

So he has still not sold his faked crap.

Also Nico - observe these pics. 3 pieces of true legit Zahal marked Yugos (one of em is in my collection) All with mis matched numbers and one has the rare leg holster.
Some of em resemble the same logo type as yours, but if I were you i would have yours cross checked.
I can hook you up with a guy in Israel that know what he is talking about or the guy that i got my legit one from.
Let me know.
