Hello Nats,

The HJ-knife was standardized as early as 1933 and its length was set at 25 cm.

Only the very early examples will be a bid longer: the so called "eagle-heads" and the Carl W├╝sthof so called "honor" knifes.

Best regards,

Herman

Herman,

As you know, I'm a detail man. Is the 25 cm the knife only ... or the knife in the scabbard ?

Dave

PS, everyone: There are many small details like this of the daggers we collect that are increasingly important as the fakers get better

Hi Dave,

That is an excellent question.

Actually, after measuring several standard HJ-knifes: the knife alone measures 24,5 cm and inserted in its scabbard 25,5 cm. With a variation of +/- 0,2 cm between different makers.

Best regards,

Herman
