    Default Late HJ knife

    I have been offered this late HJ knife. Handle grips and diamonds look very good, as does the scabbard. The blade looks a little 'scratched', but not overly sharpened. There is some loss of plating on the end of the hilt. Asking price is $295, which I think is fair. Any opinions please??

    Recently repainted scabbard - which is probably not that unusual - and the
    retaining strap with snap has been replaced, I think. Is it just me, or is
    one grip panel rivet larger than the other ?

    The diamond appears to be set rather deeply. I'd like to see an extreme
    close up of it as well as the maker mark on the ricasso..........
    Regards,

    Has been messed with much too much for $300, in my opinion...

    Thanks guys. I have been told that the name scratched into the blade is Hans Fofler or similar. Should there be a RMZ on the blade, or has it been removed by the scratches?

    I see no name on the blade. If you are referring to the ricasso, there is
    something there - It could have been scratched on to hide the fact
    that it is a fake.........

    For another $100 you can get a really nice, very early piece at Lakesidetrader. Check out the Henkels one, that'd be my choice.

    Or DDsDaggers.com :: Buy, Sell, Trade & Consign Third Reich Nazi Edged Weapons German Daggers has some reasonably priced ones as well.

    I put up these links to show you a few places with nice prices, make sure you run anything past the forum though.

    Best,

    Thanks guys. I checked out Lakeside earlier (always some very nice items there) and the Collectors Guild (ditto) to see what pricing/quality was like. It's like the SA daggers, Lakeside has some beautiful ones for only a little more than a beater elsewhere.
