    Hi Greek!! Welcome to the forum,,this knife is postwar...as it resembles the HJ characteristics from that period,, but this style knife was and is,,, still mass produced today. The makers logo on the Ricasso shows a period maker "Kronenkrebs".who the maker is really known as Julius Carl Krebs established in 1866..which made HJ daggers. The original logo which is very hard and rare to find,,would be shown with out the modern English wording " Solingen Germany" All post war knives would exhibit the English wording. The Boy scout diamond looks to have been added on to the grip plates. This example is unfamiliar to me and some of our Resident HJ collectors could give more of a detailed assessment about the other characteristics of this knife. Regards Larry

    Im sure it may be worth a few dollars but this knife is not period. If it were period and in the condition it is in including the rarity of the maker logo..I would put this at $200-300. Anything that has the words Solingen Germany will detract from the value. Take a look into our HJ forum ,which I will post the link shortly. The HJ dagger will have a single edge and not a double edge.

    I recall seeing these knives floating around in the 1960's. As the grip insignia was designed to fit the cutout for the HJ knife, I always considered these to be made at least partially from leftover war time stock.

    That would make one Badass BS knife.
    I have a similar one that is more of the HJ design(single edge) but has the BS emblem on the handle.
    Were their Boy Scouts in Germany during the TR?

    What is a BS emblem? as these are German boy scout knives with Fleur de lis.
    Edit bs = boy scout I am slow..
