that's nice transitional knife.
I see no problems
No problem with this one, but I will point out that the scabbard is not in keeping with the rest of the dagger, however everything is real IMHO
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
Welcome to WRF , Your transitional hj knife has no red flags just some age greying & ware on the blade, i like your X-ray photo of the hilt showing the diamond insignia fixed correctly
Could you add your X-ray photo here for referance on the diamond variations thread please, thanks !
Hitler Youth Knife Diamond Variations From 1933-1942
original hj knife
Have posted the x ray cheers & thanks again
and you made a nice entrance with this nice transitional.
Lovely grip and other then the greying it is a fine looking fellow.
A lot of those transitional have shallow RZM logo's and Motto's like this one, my Klitterman is looking quite similar.
Great youve added that X-ray to the Diamond variation post.
I see what John means looking at the wear of the blade its scabbard paint almost seems new.
HJ scabbards and repaint...well we all can talk about that ....its easily overlooked, and even your picture cant make it clear.
Thx for showing!
