    Default Hitler Youth Knife HJ knife--chance to buy...Want opinions PLEASE!

    I have a chance to buy this HJ knife, but I want some opinions on to whether or not it is real and also to a decent price to offer. I think the blade has been worked--sharpened--or something because the wording is gone! But, any opinions would be great. thanks!

    If this is an original, which it appears to be, it will have no motto because it is
    a later example. RZM models do not carry the 'Blut und Ehre' etching.

    The pics are not the greatest, but neither are my eyes..........!

    Hmmm....I did not know that! Learn something new every day! Are they more rare than the 'motto versions'? I need to make an offer on the knife, but I have no idea what to offer! I want it for my collection if it is real. thanks!

    The knife is fine. As Steve points out it is a late model (1938-45) and as such would not have a motto. It was made by F.W.Holler of Solingen as shown on the reverse ricasso. A dealer price for one in this condition which appears to be in a fair state, would be between $450-$525 approx. Less if a private purchase.

    The motto was discontinued before the war - 1938 - I believe.
    They are not rare, just a different/later type.

    Please wait for a few more responses and hear what some
    others have to say about it. This one is in excellent
    condition...........!

    ( I have an earlier one which I paid $380 about 6 or 7 years
    ago, but prices are likely higher today )


    Thanks, Ned !
    Regards,

    Thanks guys! Yes, I will wait for a few more responses before I shoot an offer. The seller (private purchase) said they saw these listed for around $600---which I thought was WAY too high! I want to pay a fair price, but not over pay either! I also wasnt' sure if this would be considered in "good" , "fair", or "great" condition. Thanks again and hopefully I will get a few more responses

    hi bill, its an original hj knife in fine condition. prices have risen sharply over the last few years on hj knifes. but $600 is very high. personally for a private sale i would pay no more than $350 ,its a very common knife ,no need to fork out over the odds as plenty of examples around. .....cheers paul
