Don't have any photos yet, but I picked up a new dagger recently, and I have some questions about it.
I found a Spanish guy selling what he said was an the Eickhorn KCB 77 M1 Bayonet that is issued to the Norwegian Armed Forces (see picture: Eickhorn Bayonet
When the knife arrived, it didn't have the little squirrel logo that Eickhorn are known for, but instead I found "AÏTOR", barely visible, stamped into the blade where the squirrel should have been.
After some googling, I'm fairly certain that this is the model "AITOR BAYONET 16068", which appears to be discontinued.Aitor
, according to Wikipedia is a Spanish blade manufacturer, but the little information I was able to dig up about this bayonet in particular was in Spanish, so I understood exactly fuck-all.
Can anyone shed some light on this blade and it's relationship to the Eickhorn blade I was told it was? Is it a knockoff, or perhaps produced on license since the Spanish are rocking the G36?
Any idea if there are notable differences in quality?
If they're virtually the same, sans the logo I'm not really bothered, but since I didn't get what I though I would, I'd at least like to know what the bleeding hell it is.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
