Title HJ knife, 2nd pattern
Nationality German
Period c 1939-45

This is the last model of the HJ Fahrtenmesser. These knives were were used by fully qualified members of the Hitler Youth. This model has a plain blade without the usual 'blood and honour' inscription. It is maker marked in code, along with the RZM mark.

The blade has had some wear and tear over the years, but all the marks are nice and sharp and the essential profile is intact. The scabbard has lost all its paintwork and the leatherwork has been restored at some point, hence the price. The plastic grips are intact, as is the enamel diamond in the centre. These daggers are now increasingly hard to find, even if in slightly scruffy condition like this one.

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction
