Hello all,

I don't have the knowledge with these to say one way or the other so I thought I would post for review. I have never handled a Damascus blade and don't know what to look for in these. Any opinions on this HJ honor dagger for me? Blade is marked ECHT DAMAST on it.

Looks like KURTEN'S work from the 1970s IMO.

I recall one of those walking around a show, SOS sticks in my mind, and everyone being very leery about it.

Has anyone seen a real one of these (marine Hilter Youth Leader)?


Never argue with an idiot, he will only drag you down to his level and beat you with experience. And remember the early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

I saw a real Marine HJ Leader's dagger maybe 13-14 years ago. Everything about it was standard Horster with the exception of the gilt fittings, no damascus blade or anything unusual. I know who did pick it up & I was sorry in the end that I didn't buy it myself.

Billy, that was the one on eban right? I thought THAT one was real, but missed it.
Never seen another.
No Horster docs on a Marine HJ Leader to your knowledge ?
