Interesting bayonet.

Looks like an svt40 blade welded to a mosin nagant mount. I suppose they used what they had.

Yes it is possible to see two parts. The first the basis from a needle of a rifle of Mosin. Second -an edge from Tokarev's rifle.However an edge longer than at SVT-40. This edge is more than the edge of a bayonet SVT.This edge is more similar to an edge of a German carbine

It seems odd to make a blade like that when metal was scarce. Surely some kind of simple spike would have been more logical.

I think what to make edges simple work if to compare to a needle. However I shall try to find the literature on the reason of such decision
