Looking good Steve, whats the hj knife maker?
You're welcome, Scott !
There is no leather buffer pad on the HJ, but I've been told
the early ones did not have them.
I remember reading somewhere that the HJ knives cost only
1.50 DM back then, and SA's were around 3.50 DM.
Old Adolf sure got the cutlery business moving in the '30's !
Steve, early no ricasso hjs did have leather buffer pads but most are lost to time due to deterioration, yours has a very short ricasso with no bottom retaining hook/notch on the blade which differ from each maker on early hjs.
All look fine to me.
I agree, they all look great.
