During the height of the Cold War, East Germany was second only to the Soviet Union in military strength among Warsaw Pact nations. East German variants of the storied AK47 rifle were manufactured and distributed to Eastern-aligned insurgencies and proxy governments around the world. Most of them came with this Bayonet. With a 6" stainless steel blade, it was a formidable close combat weapon and versatile survival tool. Scabbard includes a built-in wire cutter. Pre-tested by East German troops during training, now ready for a new mission as a conversation piece or on display in your military collection.
