    I bought 10 cheaply made bayonets from Russia a few years back. The whole set was maybe 100 Euros. OK blades, but the handles are miserable. They probably all fit on an AK 47, but none of the designs is authentic. <br><br>Amongst them was this:<br><br><img src="http://i14.servimg.com/u/f14/16/32/46/92/bayosp10.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>(in comparison with my Cold Steel Hold Out II, 4" blade). <br><br>A huge bayonet, the sharpened part of the blade is 36 cm (about 14"). The handle is short and edgy, making this a very unbalanced weapon. So I decided to exhange the handle against a nice 30 mm beech rod! This way I can fire it from my witch beheader bazooka. <br><br>I cut off the pommel and removed the scales. Then I cut a slot into the beech rod and fitted the blade in. Secured it with wood screws through the original holes, and also wrapped it with poly string (double constrictor knot). Rock solid. <br><br><img src="http://i14.servimg.com/u/f14/16/32/46/92/bayosp11.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Then I smeared on some epoxy putty and filed it down after it had hardened.<br>Last step: sanding it and oiling it with linseed!<br><br><img src="http://i14.servimg.com/u/f14/16/32/46/92/bayosp12.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Now it is a much more dangerous weapon, really a home made assegai short stabbing spear. And it fits nicely into the witch beheader!<br><br><img src="http://i14.servimg.com/u/f14/16/32/46/92/bayosp13.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>BTW, the cat loves linseed oil, too...<br><br><img src="http://i14.servimg.com/u/f14/16/32/46/92/bayosp14.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    So you show once again, that there is no waste in your house. Everything is "shootable".<br>And after shooting a nice toothpick for your cat. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    Joerg, some of those bayonets will shatter on inpact. Back in my solder days, we had a bunch of them from the supply depot. We put them on broom handle and threw them like spears. Several of the bayonets broke about 3 inches from the tip, and again about 2 inches further up the blade. This piece of blade just went flying, so please be careful with this project.<br><br>Regards,<br>Brian

    Brian, thanks for the tip! I will be very careful, only shoot at soft things and from a safe distance.

    Yes, shooting it with the chain rolling is the general idea...

    <div>it doesn´t fit really good on wood or other hard things<br>because:<br>-it flyes too fast<br>-the chain is too lame<br><br>and it´s too expensive <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_eek.gif" alt="Shocked" longdesc="5"><br><br><br>but... zombies and Bambies <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_twisted.gif" alt="Twisted Evil" longdesc="13">

    Well, of course this will be completely useless as a weapon. But for entertainment purposes, it is excellent!

    I think the saw will need at least a new sword and chain for every shot.

    Shot it against the archery foam target... went all the way through, even the 30mm rod made it. The target was toppled over, too. This is deadly. <br><br><img src="http://i14.servimg.com/u/f14/16/32/46/92/bayosp15.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i14.servimg.com/u/f14/16/32/46/92/bayosp16.jpg" border="0" alt="">
