North Korean Type 68

North Korean Type 68 bayonet

North Korean Type 68 bayonets have unique design among AK related bayonets. Type 68 rifle is the North Korean variant of Russian AKM rifle produced from 1968.

Both blade and handle are different than a classic 6h4 bayonet. A scabbard is based on 6h2 bayonet scabbard and the blade has unique bowie type blade shape without saw and wirecutter hole.

Serial numbers on North Korean Type 68 bayonets.

There is a story how models with green belt hanger (frog) were made for North Korea and models with beige/khaki for Cuba, but both of my bayonets comes from Panama.
