Greetings once again. I've been snowed in for the last week but the mail finally arrived which included this 1940 RZM M7/42 Hitler Youth Knife. I'm wondering if these have been faked in the past because this seems to be in excellent shape. Almost too nice.
I've owned several of these knives in the past and everything feels right in terms of weight, size and look but I'm still suspicious. For instance, the youth diamond emblem does not move or rock in place. Also, the scabbard throat has a white material inside that doesn't seem original to me.
I would greatly appreciate any feedback from those of you who have more experience with HJ knives. Thank you!
