Greetings! What do you think of this knife. I understand the handle is grip horn.
Rare and also the correct branding of this maker.
Is it a unique item or a remake from HJ?
What is the opinion of the experts?
All the best!

This knife is a fabrication:

- the blade is not original as Clemen & Jung did never produce any HJ-knifes.
- any HJ-knife with a late hilt (short finger guard) should bear a RZM mark.

The scabbard is not shown very well in the pictures, but appears to be original.


You never have enough HJ-knifes!

Even if you wanted to believe all the red flags as original, those rivets were not period done. So many doubts to overcome to believe this thing is legitimate, too many.

Thought those saw teeth/serrations were illegal after WW1 with the exception of Firemen and Red Cross. Did they ever make a HJ with a blade like that??

No, they never made them like this.

But some HJ youth members did like to modify their knife privately: by replacing bakelite with stag grips and adding teeth to the blade for example.
