Dear forum users.
I just started collecting knives of the 3rd Reich. I bought two Hitlerjugend knives with authenticity guarantee from a private seller. The knife without motto is very similar to the original, but the second one has doubts about the grip plates, namely non-magnetic grip rivets and small backlash on the grip plates.
Thank you very much for your time and knowledge. smile

Best regards
Dan

Hello Dan ,

your two knives are Ok and I appreciate the marking LFS (Lederwerke Sedina Finkenwald) on the leather of the 1st one .

Congrats to you .

Hello Dan,

Unfortunately, the Voos HJ-knife is not a period one in my opinion:

- The cross grain is also not what we expect, it is too scratchy for a 1938 HJ-knife

- Also compare the rivets and the RZM mark with the Voos HJ-knifes below.

- 99% of the original, early 1938 (mottoed) HJ-knifes still had the steel based (magnetic) hilt.

Best regards,

Herman

Here is an overview on the authentic RZM marking by Voos.

Best regards,

Herman
