    My view is definitely a replacement strap with and of course its had an additional aftermark motto. The loop on the B of the blut is wrong. Its not acid edged making the motto smooth this has been engraved.

    Sad because the motto has wrecked a perfectly original blade.

    Ryan,


    The hj knife in itself is ok, the motto has been enhanced by engraving of some kind as it was most likely badly worn so someone decided to make it look better!!

    As for the scabbard, i am pretty sure this is the wider body post war type !

    Damage to the diamond insignia as well, i would pass & wait for a nice unmessed with knife.

    I think Mac is spot on!
    Scabbard def. does not belong to the knife, its leather lacks the wear an early HJ scabbard should have.
    It lacks the spider forming in its finish lacquer or the depht in color.
    This scabbard only shows recent damage, its a recent made one.

    The Motto on the blade had some help to be a bit more visible, lets say a bit of plastic surgery
    Pass this one would be my advise!
