    I like it. I've been looking for a good early HJ knife with the motto on it, but man are they hard to find. These puppies were treated rough, rode hard, and put up wet!

    I would leave it as it is, if you desire a nicer one, find another to add to your collection.

    I agree with Ralph. Anything as close to the heart as this mustn't be tampered with. I think its nice as it is.

    Surprising the amount of people go to the expense of restoring only to find out the item is then worth less than before you know.

    But each to there own.
