I, for my misplaced sense of, well whatever, will be deploying to sandier climes sooner or later and being an IR (job the Regs cant fill (stretched not over stretched!)) have had some kit issued. Bayonet, GS, showing, how hard core. Now I am a proud (hope to God I dont need the fecking thing) owner. Now this is a new piece of kit. So, first impressions; Cheap piece of sh1t. One piece brittle moulding of HMs cheapest metal. Now it is so new (or I am sooooooooooo naive) it has no grinding on the blade. No, it is cast, that is it. Ideas on how to sharpen? Im non-inf but will be doing an interesting job (NON-SF or THEM) but am too shy to go into specifics. How the fook do I get an edge on it without being arrested. Can I just take it to a shop or what? Now the back should not be sharpened as it will degrade the superior rip parting capability (says the PAM, I looked) but what about the front? No, I have no desire to use this as a bayonet but if I have to lug this chocolate fire guard around with me then I at least want an edge on it. Faster than whipping a multi tool or penknife out... Help!
