Well to make a long story short, I purchased a bayonet from a trusted vendor. I have bought many times from them with no issues. My latest purchase was a few surplus items, one of them being an AKM bayonet. The item was advertised as used condition will show wear and was priced at $20. When I opened the box to look at my order everything was fine minus the bayonet. It was lightly rusted and covered in dirt. That wasn't my main issue, it was heavily worn on the blade and missing a large chunk out of it, along that it had many knicks along the blade and was completely butter knife dull. While I have no issue with used items, this thing really should have never been sold to begin with. So the question is should I contact the vendor or consider this a lesson learned and just be fine by being out $20?
