    Looks homemade, is certainly not a factory made HJ knive, but it has a genuine Diamond and its been there for ages.....
    No i will not ask you if it wiggles...

    Now we have to date it:
    Fact is it has a concealed diamond, its not shown when the dagger is in the scabbard.
    So this person doesnt want you to know its there, that could point out that it was postwar.
    This kind of 4 rivets grip is a typical 50-60ths type.
    So i would date is postwar, that also explains the hidden Diamond.

    Looks pretty much like a "Nazi Lover" had too much time on his hands and made this at home at his workbench. Probably couldn't afford a real HJ dagger, so he "made his own". Why he even wanted one so bad that he sat down and Made one, we'll never know. It isn't a "fake" so to speak, as there never was such a knife and collectors certainly wouldn't be fooled into paying big money for it.

    Thanks for the info guys, youve said pretty much what i was thinking, i dont dislike it, i find it an interesting item so i might keep it for a while.

    @Gerrit, the diamond is in there pretty good, it does not wiggle, thats the first thing i tried LOL, it does come apart very easily too, it was very loosely put together when i got it so its easy enough to change it round so the diamond is at the front which i might do for my display.

    Looks like a us fighting knife, it looks like it has a Kabar style blade

    Nothing like a Ka-bar clip point blade, and it's a lot smaller.
    - If anything, it is reminiscent of a Finnish 'Puukko'.
