    Default Rare Early HJ Max Weyersburg - From a front step in Holland

    I was able to pry this great rarity of a producer from Gerrits hands..and he returned the favor by twisting my arm to post it. The HJ knife I speak of which once resided in his collection has crossed the Atlantic..and has now blessed my front step

    Early HJ Fahrtenmesser with Motto by Max Weyersberg

    This HJ IMO has never been seen but is early period all the way. The blade is the thinner type..making that ping sound when you tap it with your fingernail. Very nice. .
    The Blade Motto is the lighter etch which is still very visible..and also appears to be a scant smaller in size maybe due to being shallow in depth.

    The over all feel of this HJ knife is a chunky feel to it..feeling heavier than most other HJ types. There is a saddle of a washer beneath the crossguard. It is quite thick and very original. The Knife glides into the scabbard almost the same feel and sound of an SA or SS dagger makes when putting it in.
    I am very pleased with this acquisition and very thankful for Gerrits Generosity..sending along a bottle of "Shock treatment"...as I was stunned when I got to hold this rare piece of history in my hands. The Scotch was awesome.
    Below are the photos which can not be equaled in quality to Gerrits photos..but yet Im still proud to have this fine and rare representative of the HJ movement. Regards Larry

    A beauty. I've been trying to find a good condition HJ dagger with motto myself. Just haven't found the one that "feels" right. Perhaps after the new year it will materialize for me. I'm glad you could pry this one from him, after all, what are friends for?

    I had a conversation with Gerrit about this Knife..and it has a great feel to it !!..not sure if its the density of the material used..but quite noticeable when first held. I have felt this same heaviness in some SA daggers mainly from rare producers also. Seems as though the larger producers were streamlining their materials and buy them at a cheaper price.to create and get them out the door. I have noticed on my Early Tiger HJ..with the larger Tiger logo..that it feels slightly lighter. Maybe not noticeable to the non collector..but surely to those who collect these...it can be felt. I really like it !!

    The grip itself has a nice squared look and feel to it appearing as a solid example. Regards Larry
