Hey Ivan .....interesting HJ..just my opinion..but looks to me a like a private purchase ,,but period. Looks like an early fore runner of the standard HJ. The placement of the HJ diamond is interesting also as it covers one of the rivet holes and or it is the actual rivet itself!!...attached to the diamond.
Do I dare say..prototype?...as it has a leather scabbard. I would like to see if there is some type of logo or lettering somewhere close to the grip as Cody inquires.
Ivan we are all ears and eyes ready to listen and see your thoughts on this... unusual knife Regards Larry
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

Larry I have seen maybe five of these before,so I don't think it is a private purchase knife . This one is in pretty bad shape so
you can't see the maker,but it's a Wingen same as others I have seen. The diamond is screwed to the grip.
