    Hi Ben ,i think your right ,im no expert on these but i believe the lip on the opening to the scabbard would not be found on period HJ
    knives.Also the registered maker mark on the blade looks a bit
    suss.

    Cheers Brookes.

    Hi Ben , this looks like a post war made scouts knife that has had a HJ lozenge inserted . The makers mark on the ricasso shows a modern day registered trade mark ( R in a circle ) the pattern on the grips run parallel with the lozenge ( another give away ) , and the scabbard has a thick throat where the knife is inserted , when all period examples had no throat and a single small rivet in the front , just down from the throat ,

    cheers Al

    Thanks guys, I thought as much but I have never collected these at all, I only know what I have read about them, the leather on the scabbard was suspect to me straight away!

    Hey cheers Scott, he paid 150, I have told him to take it back and the seller to read this thread if he has doubts about the knife!

    Ben he was done stinking at 150, worth maybe 25max, heres a pic of an hj knife i recently sold on. Al some hj knife makers grip pattern does run parrallel with the daimond like this late war Anton Wingen without motto, but you are correct about being a red flag just to make you look more into an hj knife for anymore problems!!!
    Regards Scott.

    Fake HJ knives are endemic.

    Last week my daughter called to say that a friend of her boyfriend had got a HJ dagger to sell which once belonged to his Grandad. So I was fairly hopefull it would be good. I went over to see her and the knife on Friday and it too was a fake.

    Cheers, Ade.
