Their latest device is the Mini Bayo, a pistol-mountable bayonet with quite the pedigree. In cooperation with Ka-Bar and Ethan Becker (of Becker Knife and Tool) they’ve made a 2.75-inch medium carbon-steel gunshank with a black oxide finish. Its handle is glass-reinforced nylon and features a two-button quick-release mount.
It also has a sort of hook-thing along the top which appears to be “bitchin’” and “nasty-looking”. We have to agree, this new offering is light-years ahead of their previous, flawed Mini Survival Knife (it is far less bad-ass).
What’s not known yet is if LaserLyte will also be supplying holsters, of on-the-waist, in-the-waist, and MOLLE, for people who can’t risk not having a bayonet on their pistols twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
We here at Guns.com are ardent enthusiasts of the Picatinny rail and all that it carries, but we do hope that LaserLyte offers the Mini Bayo in wristwatch-mount, shooting eyewear-mount, and sneaker-mount models. That has always been the reason CZ’s pistol bayonet never dominated the market—mounting options.
We’re not sure, however, if the Mini Bayo will see a great deal of success in the tactical footwear market, as that market is absolutely saturated. Minnetonka’s been the king of Tactical Moccasin Hill for decades and has a reputation that just will not back down.
