I have a chromed Swiss Bayonet. According to Guisan on SwissRifles - soldiers paid to have them chromed out of their pockets - for rust prevention; Swiss Army approved the action; also so the Soldier could impress his lady when in uniform and on a pass...(so I've heard about the last part of it)Chrome plated......only the Swiss.
