Welcome to GDC, Buddy.

It looks like one of the earliest, but a pic of the trademark would help.

I also think this knife would be of interest to many. But, I know little about HJ knives. I have two. There is not enough difference in the HJ's to tickle my fancy.
But I would expect at $600 for it to go, but condition is such a factor now-a-days.
Good luck
Ed

That is an early original HJ-knife in worn condition, but all complete.

Max Weyersberg made plenty of HJ-knifes, but these early ones are tough to find.

Best regards,

Herman


You never have enough HJ-knifes!
