    Great looking HJ only problem is that you get hooked on these. I'm allready thinking of buying another one
    Thanks for the kind words! I really don't consider myself an edged weapons collector... In the past, I just acquired bayonets to complete the WWII rifles I collect.

    With that being said, I am really fond of my new HJ dagger! I am currently searching for pictures/ stories of soldaten using their HJ daggers in combat!

    Questions: 1. Did my dagger originally have a motto on the side of the blade? 2. I've heard that my scabbard is "a candidate for a repaint"... thoughts?

    Hi Joe, post 1938, the motto on the blade was done away with to save money. 1938 of course saw a huge expansion of the HJ.

    As the scabbard is now completely devoid of paint it could be redone I suppose..

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade,

    As always, thanks for the informative response!

    As my HJ knife is a 1938, does it make the cutoff... should it have the motto, or was it buffed out?

    I feel that my dagger should be left as-is. In the item description on Paul's website, he says: "The dent-free scabbard body is worn yet the leather remains in great condition. The black finish is gone and this would be a candidate for a repaint." Daggers are totally foreign to me... and I've noticed that people take German dress daggers apart (I thought that would be frowned upon...?)... I just didn't know if repainting was an accepted practice.

    I would not repaint it personally.

    I don't think it ever had the motto.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thank you, Ade and Scout!

    No worries, I never thought about painting it. I just was wondering if it is something that is done/ accepted.

    Hi Gizmo8z I was looking into your HJ cloth sleeve diamond,, and these types were used on The Deutche BDM uniforms,, or the Hitler youth females. I have one of these also in my collection................the cloth diamond i mean here is photo of one being worn on a uniform. The males did not wear the diamond, just the armband and black upper triangle on the left arm. The other picture is one that i do not own but shows a BDM wearing her uniform

    Thanks for the info, Siegfried! Someone had mentioned that earlier, but I wasn't quite sure. Your picture is the first time I've the diamond insignia attached to a uniform and not loose.

    The diamond was brought home as a souvenir by T/Sgt Francis K. Freundorfer of the 35th Evac Hospital...

    Did HJ females use Hitler Youth knives?

    I made a thread about this, but I am not getting much of a response... Is there any documented usage of HJ Knives in combat? Pictures?

    Great HJ Fahrtenmesser! Now you need a Koppelschloss or two. One of any of these things just isn't enough.
