    Default HJ knife - is it a good one

    I have seen this knife. It has a broken leather strap from the scabbard to the handle attachment, but is otherwise in very good shape. Marked M7/30 or possibly 36 (Gebruder Grafrath or Horster). No engraving on the blade itself. Is it a good one???Click image for larger version.

    I am no expert, but it looks ok, did the engraving get ground off?

    Hi Al, it stands a good chance of being original: better pics would confirm. I have a little concern re the grip plates and insignia.

    Hi Marty, post 1938 knives did not have the motto on the blade.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I believe it was a cost saving exercise!
