    Default German boy scout/HJ knife query

    Hi all, I saw a German boy scout knife at the local flea market Saturday which is identical to the HJ knife except it only has the maker´s name (forgot it) and the diamond in the handle has the fleur de lis in it. The scabbard is the same as the HJ type but the leather is brown. Were these made post war to use up excess manufature or were they made earlier? Cheers, Roland.

    Hi Roland, these were made post war, originally using old left over stock parts, but later with newly made parts.

    Cheers, Ade.

    If its the same one im thinking of, people try and fool others by putting HJ diamonds in place of the "flur" insignia. They are easy to spot tho, especially the blades

    These Boy Scout knives - with the 'green diamond' and 'fleur de lis'
    scout logo - were available in the early/mid 1970's.
