Wanted Blades

I'm going to use this page to identify some of the blades on my want list, these are not all super rare or expensive blades (I want them as well). Rather it is the less common variants of common blades in the main, and usually this is only due to the limited selection I have access too in Scotland.  It will be obvious that there are three main lines of collection, UK, AK variations and Turkish blades. Plus any blade for countries I currently do not hold blades for. My bayonet listing cross index currently runs to over 4000 blades (not including separate makers, and all variations), of which I have I have around 900 so the full want list is huge, but unlikely to ever be filled.
