im thinking i might buy an AK bayonet to use as a utility knife, that could also be attached to my AK... problem is most these bayonets made were not the best of quality... blades seemed to not hold edges well, and broke easily for example

ive made a few knives here and there, made grips, etc.. so what im wondering is if i could buy an old AK bayonet, take it apart, and rebuild it with a newer, better blade, restore the wood on the grip, and have an attractive, yet functional combination bayonet and utility knife

so my question is... what bayonets would this be best done with? is it possible to disassemble them and rebuild them with better components? and if so, what is the specific AK bayonet you would choose? there are many, even a folding version.. looking through the various bayonets, i think id want the one called the "type II" bayonet

also, im aware this is all bakelite.. but would it be possible to replace this with wood?
