Sorry, its a repro..
May I ask why you have so much questionable fake stuff at the moment?
Are you testing the water to see if you can palm it off?
If not, Change of supplier I say.
The pictures aren't close enough to deem this a reproduction in my opinion. Quite possible it's a original with a fantasy blue diamond added after the original fell out.
That said, any colored HJ diamond such as blue, orange, pink, etc. is incorrect and completely fantasy as we all know, but it too could be a replacement done by a collector. The photos are from a far, and I'm on my phone so I can't see much detail, but I will say that although rare, the "Bowie" style knife was produced for the Hj dagger. In fact, I have one.
Admittedly, the knife is probably a reproduction, but better safe than sorry I'd say.

No chance, look at the lip on the scabbard and the blade shape.

Blue is not a National Socialist Color.....and has no part in the Doctrine of the party or the HJ movement.
Blue for Boys and Pink for Girls?.....sorry not in this case

Yes, the lip on the scabbard and the word Germany are a dead give away.
All has been said.
Blue is the underwater division of the HJ, its so to say the Marine division without the subs
Every one knows this!!
How horrible can a fake be?
I dont know why this knife has even been posted here!
So much nice reference material on this Forum, its even easy for a almost blind man to compare this bogus knife with the real thing here.
Do a bit of research before posting here please!
Lots of people take the effort and time to post their knives here with good detailed shots, so knives like this shouldnt even be questioned here.
As for the dagger, now that I've viewed this on my work computer and not just my phone I can see that the markers mark among other things are inaccurate; sorry for any false hope. That said, I still believe the blue diamond was not originally apart of this dagger and was added as a replacement by a dealer or collector. I would bet better photographs would even prove this.
