What is it ? Original or copy ? The handle is not magnetic.
No RZM code, only maker's mark.

Hi Vik,

A highly unusual piece you posted...

It has typical Robert Klaas aluminum rivets, but on later (alloy grip) knifes by this maker, the reverse ricasso is normally marked with the RZM-code and the production year.

It could be a production error...

This is a piece i would like to hand inspect !

The diamond could be a replacement, does it moves?

Best regards,

Herman

Hi Herman
Thanks for the message. The diamond is moving. Doesn't look like a replacement.
I saw a similar knife a few years ago.
Wittmann's site seems to be.
I think it's a factory defect.

Regards
Vik

Hi Vik,

Thanks for the extra info!
A wiggling diamond is an excellent sign to authenticity!
Do you have this knife in your collection?

Best regards,

Herman

Hi Herman

The knife is not with me now. It has found a new owner.
I don't consider myself a fan of HJ knives, although I have two in my collection.

Regards

Vik
