    Sorry, its a repro..

    May I ask why you have so much questionable fake stuff at the moment?

    Are you testing the water to see if you can palm it off?

    If not, Change of supplier I say.

    The pictures aren't close enough to deem this a reproduction in my opinion. Quite possible it's a original with a fantasy blue diamond added after the original fell out.

    But that's just the scabbard. Each piece, IMO, should be judged on its own merit. Just because the scabbard is post-war doesn't mean the knife is too. A collector could've brought these two items together due to the knife no longer retained its original scabbard. Such is often the case.
    That said, any colored HJ diamond such as blue, orange, pink, etc. is incorrect and completely fantasy as we all know, but it too could be a replacement done by a collector. The photos are from a far, and I'm on my phone so I can't see much detail, but I will say that although rare, the "Bowie" style knife was produced for the Hj dagger. In fact, I have one.
    Admittedly, the knife is probably a reproduction, but better safe than sorry I'd say.

    No chance, look at the lip on the scabbard and the blade shape.

    Blue is not a National Socialist Color.....and has no part in the Doctrine of the party or the HJ movement.

    Blue for Boys and Pink for Girls?.....sorry not in this case

    Blue is the underwater division of the HJ, its so to say the Marine division without the subs
    Every one knows this!!

    How horrible can a fake be?
    I dont know why this knife has even been posted here!
    So much nice reference material on this Forum, its even easy for a almost blind man to compare this bogus knife with the real thing here.

    Do a bit of research before posting here please!
    Lots of people take the effort and time to post their knives here with good detailed shots, so knives like this shouldnt even be questioned here.

    Wink "The Best of the Worst...a Study in Edged Weapon Alter Art

    Hi All,

    I have always wanted one of these, however the symbol on the hilt is unusual so thought I would seek the wider opinion.

    I think the badge is that of the Reichsbund der Deutschen Beamten however don't understand how it turned up on this item?

    Help would be appreciated

    A defaced SA grip..the original eagle was removed and replaced with a non political to create a non existent political wing of the SA.
