    Default Early Tiger HJ Fahrtenmesser with Motto and the Owners name on top of the Hilt!

    This is my latest catch a very early Tiger HJ Knife.
    Nice deeply etched Motto and makersname with the Ges.gesch. logo!
    Blade has some grey spots, but leather ( with bubble print!) and snap are in great condition.
    It has the typical thin blade and small Diamond.
    Scabbard is the early type which is black anodized.
    1 of the scabbard springs still has its originl cotton jacket!
    But what makes this a very special knife is the engraving on top of the Hilt!
    Never seen that done so beautiful.
    Enjoy this great Knife!
    Cheers,
    Ger

    That is a really nice early example, and the inscription is alot more beautiful then the one on mine! I wonder how many thousands of roberts were in the HJ, no tracing this one lol

    Nice find Gerrit!! These early tiger HJs seem to have a deeper etch compared to other makers. Very Nice.
