    Default HJ knives

    Hello Gents.
    i just thought i would share what's left of my HJ stuff. i have sold off a number of better condition HJ knives, but these were the only two i had with motto. and one is almost impossable to see any more.i also kept these two because of the differences in them, to show people that with pre RZM items all bets are off. RZM standerdized many things. i have heard often that if the diamond pattern on the grip dont follow the diamond's angle is a repro. that's just not true in all cases. pre RZM items were made with out RZM rules. look close at both grips and diamonds. the grips have never been replaced. just keep in mind pre RZM items can vary from what many collectors considder considder standard. note the clip point on one blade, it is factory. and the small drop piece on the blade ricasso area on one, but not on the other. and the difference in scabbard tips. over the years i have come to learn that i did not know as much as i once thought i did. books are good, but depending on the writers actuall knowledge.
    all i want to say is we learn all the time. don't be to quick to say something is bad or good based on one small thing, (like the checkering on the grip). untill you look the whole item over well.

    Hi Andrew, thanks for showing these two knives. I can see why you kept them. I too like the pre RZM examples.

    And many thanks too the photo of the lads throwing their knives into the tree. Great images!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Surprising they could last tossing them into a tree. Those hilts are rather soft and and can snap easily.
    Nice pair of knives you have there!

    very nice pieces you still have,i also remember seeing those pictures before but there is one missing as there is also another picture showing one of the daggers in the tree had half the grip broken and was sure sign that not all hj's you see with a broken grip's was due to post war neglect

    infact theres another broken grip on the top knife although its not the angle/one i am thinking of

    regards ewan
