Wanted from Afghanistan, Bayonets

#1
Having been out there in 2005-6 I saw a great deal of German Sawback Bayonets in the two authorised markets in Kabul.
I am very interested in obtaining some of these and will pay cash for any that come my way, please PM me if you can help, Paul

Nah you dont want those, they look carp in your osprey loops.

Let me guess, they are available dirt cheap over there, but a tidy sum over here?

Is there anything wrong in collecting such items?

Or is the outrage just purely because it is a knife?

Those things got banned by the Germans during world war 1 didn't they? Too gruesome
Common urban legend. They were actually designed for engineer/pioneer units - Infantry etc carried non-sawbacked ones. British troops encountering them drew the obvious conclusion though, and there are a lot of stories about executing guys found with them (See 'All Quiet on the Western Front', somewhere) and because of these stories, boxhead nigs who were issued them were often advised to 'lose' them or grind the saw off. After the war however, I think they were banned due to some clause in either the Treaty of Versailles, or the Geneva convention... not 100% sure on that one though.
Certainly there is evidence of German soldiers being ordered to grind the saw part down by their officers.

Edited to say: Damn, BarceBandit got there first!

Why? Contrary to media opinion, owning something long and sharp is not illegal, nor does it mean the owner is preparing for a killing spree.
I've got an extensive collection of pointy things and don't mug old ladies.
