Rackster that is a nice looking early HJ Fahrtenmesser.
These early ones have the Motto "Blut und Ehre" on the blade.
Please post this one in the Hitler Youth forum.
Make pics of both sides of the blade so we can also see the back with its makers logo.
So far its looking very well, small diamond, motto, right materials....even looks like an anodised scabbard..
Looking forward to the pics!
Google "Death at the Garden Gate" It's about the story of the policeman who was killed in a bombing raid on Buckingham Palace; the knife on page 3 is the one in question. It's real alright, as I've seen all the other items tonight. The photos are owned by Wayne Burn; my friend who owns the items Ok I'll switch to the other forum!
I rather thought we were looking at thread about a clothing whip ???? What's all this ???
I agree a clothing whip... They pop up from time to time and the construction methods vary.
I recently saw one advertised for $40.00 U.S.D. G
I'd rather be A "RaD Man than a Mad Man "
I moved the whip to the Arts and Exotica forum,,that thing or what element it may attract, does not belong on this forum.
Sorry Gents. Regards Larry
