    "a bayonet" ided by Slak jak as WW2 Australian Spike Bayonet

    Hi all. Really humid today and quite warm. Well waited till late this afternoon and headed out to the forrest.Thought i try a new spot. The site was on the flat above a creek. Spent about an hour and didn,t a single target.I think because you have to climb up the side of a high bank on 2 sides most wouldn,t bother. Not even a stray bullet or spread of shot gun 4,s .Well the weather started to get blowy and quite dusty .The thunderstorms would not be far away. Started getting a few sharp sounds on the GPX. Yep thunder Gpx is a great weather machine too Time to leave slowly wondered back toward the road. Finally a signal loud flat belting sound of Iron. Had nothing to loose so dig a bolt , peice of fence wire and a what. Thats a first a bayonet > no idea on this sort of weapon but i do think that this one may have been sharped quite a few times as the blade is thick near the handle and gets thin quickly . Anyway glad to get something today.

    Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,but against the rulers,against the authorities,against the powers of this world's darkness,and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

    Sorry the pic is not that good with flash. One side of handle has a round hole the other side long oval hole and a T slot in very top end of handle
