Hello guys!
I got this HJ knife for really symbolic price. I would like to ask you who is the maker? I can not read it...
What do You think about it?
Thank You very much!

I remember reading that the more rounded tip scabbards like this one are Eickhorn. Also, that RZM 7/ looks like it should have a 66 after it, maybe it's the style of the 7.

I was thinking a single digit number. 4 maybe?

Could also be M7/13 or M7/18 ??

Use a magnifying glass & it should make it a bit clearer.

Regards Mac 66.

Thank You very much guys!
Magnifying glass did not help me much, but I see a small bend, I would say that the next number is 8.

Think this is where I got the idea about the round tip scabbards being Eichkorn but I guess they could end up on any manufacturer's.

Loc: Ohio, USA Thanks Herman,
I have a couple dozen nice HJ's, no particular focus, though I like the transitionals with Mottos the best.

On the Eickhorn scabbard rounded tip, I believe all the rounded tip ones were made by Eickhorn, but not all Eickhorns came with them. There are many vet pickups with other scabbards, and I know the kids /vets mixed them up, but I think Eickhorn would occasionally get their scabbards elsewhere, especially the very early ones(like my example has a non rounded scabbard tip) and the ones made during the war years.

Thanks! John
