    Default Hitler Youth Knife

    Hi guys,

    I don't often look for daggers, but I am particularly interested in this piece. From all of the reseach I have done, it looks good to me. Nickel-plated stainless steel, good patina and wear, etc. Could I please get your opinions on it?

    Thanks,
    Mo

    Any markings left on the blade?

    An unusual green snap on the hanger, but an original Transitional knife. The small enamel damage to the diamond just adds to it's character, I think.

    Thanks for your responses! There are no markings on the blade. I suppose that would make it a wartime piece?

    Genuine late war hj knife with nickle plated zinc hilt, the blade most likely had an ink RZM stamp that has worn off due to use & buffing similar to the 2 pix i have added,

    Never seen the green button before but it was most likely black to start with & worn thru to green ?

    An interesting variation, they stopped series civilian production early in 1942 to concentrate on military production. With the pebbled calfskin leather (the backstrap) also seen with some holsters and bayonet frogs. And the green snap button something of a mystery, with brass components on various and sundry period items sometimes getting a green (verdigris) coating. Or if it's magnetic maybe somebody painted it? FP

    Thank you all for your responses. I think I'll buy it! I will post a photo of the snap when it arrives.

    Hi FP, Yes, I have heard collectors say that production of the HJ knife was discontinued in 1942 but have never seen any period evidence of this. I have always wondered where that date came from..?

    Like stated above a nice genuine Hj knife.
    The pebbled leather of the scabbard matches the late zinq alloy production of the knife with its rzzm diamond.
    a nice matching piece!
    The green button would prob. has lost its brown plastic cover
    i agree with mac, it would have had an inkstamp.

    Cheers,
    Ger
