There are certainly problems with this. The scabbard is fake, the originals don't have the raised lip at the throat. I think the knife itself is genuine, but its been badly butchered with the blade ground down and the curved quillon from the hilt removed.
Sorry this hj knife is a post war copy in very bad condition

The Salino, (the "Diamond"), could be original.
Bad post war Herbertz knife, every dime spend on it would be a loss.
Herbertz solingen is postwar, stay away from this horrible creation!
The HJ knifes that are WW2 are made by Herbertz & Meurer
Dear Friends, thank you very much for your opinions
