    Agreed, this is a transitional HJ Fahrtenmesser. It's in good condition, the diamond is especially nice!

    Hi Pepper,

    it is a genuine HJ transistional HJ Fahrtenmesser by Rob. Muller.
    It has the correct Rob. Muller transitional logo and the proper RZM big Diamond.
    What i dont like is the Motto.
    the font thats been used is to thin, and it looks like the etching is not deep enough too.

    so my 2 cents:
    original Knife, later added Motto

    Try and run the "back" of your nail down the motto. You should be able to clearly feel the etching. The etching looks far too good/new for this knife. Many motto's are barely visible these days. Except from Ger's mint example

    pepper,

    your hj knife is genuine but the motto may be added post war, please take some detailed close up photos of the motto so we can take a closer look to confirm if it was done during the period or post war applied, from the only photo supplied the motto does not look that bad to me as some makers differ in the thickness of there motto etch, also photos can be very decieving

    From the pics i will say the "Ehre" is possibly etched over corrosion.

    Problem is that that Transit. from muller didnt had a Motto as far as i know.
    the early muller ( with the crown logo) has a normal font size Motto, and that is completely different from this one above.
    So im pretty sure its been added later.

    hereby 2 nice examples of trans. mullers

    Cheers Ger

    Quick question/comment. It's my understanding that from the catalog, the buyer could still choose to add the etch after it was discontinued due to cost?
