    hey guys, picked this up today by chance. I've handled a fair amount of HJ knives and this one seemed the part to me. There's a few obvious flaws but I wanted to double-check to make sure it was real. I wasn't terribly impressed with the rivets or the diamond being fixed in place. It seems like an earlier model so it may be normal. Thanks for any opinions

    Hi Jerry ..HJ knife is by Emil Voos Co of Solingen....I edited your title from EVS.

    Your HJ knife is all authentic..but the blade has been ground down..and yes it is an Early period type.

    Other thoughts and opinions welcome. Regards Larry

    Nice quality Voos! I had one with no sheath I used for deer hunting as a kid, and held a great edge!

    Someone has given it a clean up, rust removed and as Larry points out the blade edge is reground, but it's not excessive overwork. These knives are available from relic condition to mint out of the box (owned by a bookish HJ member). Really comes down to what your budget allows and your preference for perfection versus patina. I like patina and the idea that some pimply kid has thrown the knife at a tree with a disregard that would have shocked his mother.

    I have a different opinion about when to call it a "nice quality" knife.
    IMO this is a very worn salty knife, this early thinblade is an original as stated but to me in a poor condition.

    Thanks for the comments. I figured that $50 I couldn't go wrong. It's definitely not one of the prettiest ones I've ever owned. If I remember right, Voos blades are not as common as others.

    $50? You have done well. If you wanted to sell, you could probably triple your money very easily.
