    Thanks Scott. Just trying to keep history and the knife itself together...to many collectors miss the point..and just see a knife. Regards Larry

    Hi Larry,
    Interesting tread !
    Actually, this story and background of these knives, is more interesting than the knives in itself :-)
    It kind of gives you the creeps, handling these items , that's what makes them interesting to me !

    Im a collector also of lockblades and stillettos...all of which look scary..but mean nothing....these HJ knives.. SA and SS daggers...because of the meaning and doctrine it represented...is scary!! I feel when collecting anything with a history...it gives the collectable more of an identity. Regards Larry

    The beginning of the grand deception this type marketing was a success..with the young boys...of course they wanted one because their friends had one. Hanging out together..camping hiking....then the doctrinal classes....some were Zealot supporters..others just went along with it out of fear. The NPEA is another frightful institution moving the "Chosen future Leaders" of the HJ..into the next level. A lost and wasted generation..these boys and girls grew into only ending in disillusion and disappointment.

    Interesting infout the HJ and the knife.

    In regards to NPEA and other organisations aimed at forming the German youth: An interesting but underrated fictional 'sleeper' movie about the forming of the German youth is 'Napola,' which to some degree shows the system as it brain washed the youth under the NAPOLA system.

    Napola is excellent indeed.
