I used gloves, a rag, and acetone. Q-tips for the nooks and crannies...

Just be mindful that the grips may not survive certain chemicals. Acetone will dissolve some plastics. I think once upon a time I cleaned a bayonet full of cosmoline with an aerosol brake cleaner (with the grips off of course) and it removed every bit of grease/oil immediately. Probably overkill and I had to oil the metal ASAP as rust was then an issue. I have also taken the grips off and put the metal/cosmoline in the oven at the lowest temp I could and the cosmo would just drip off.

Rifles- I would use a black trash bag, sit it in my car and let the sun really heat things up, much less helpful in the winter.

An Army surplus store about 30 years ago. Unfortunately the sheath is a lot more fragile than the bayonet, so originals not already paired with a bayonet are rare. Your best bet is a Greek surplus one and to keep hoping to get lucky.
