I was on vacation in Tn. I came across a huge crate of Ak47 bayonets for sale individually. I bought a couple and this one was different than the rest. Its handle was lighter and had a design on it. Can anyone give me any info on it? Thanks

Looks like your average Romanian AKM bayonet.

Any markings on it?

None that I see? The rest of them were a plain dark brown.

The pattern in the grip that you are seeing is the wood-fiber part of the phenolic.

Colors and patterns vary slightly depending on who was tending the batch.
