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.

My Arisaka arrived at 9.00am. Very prompt delivery and excellent packaging! The blade is superb.. and just what I was after, its in very fine condition and just as you described.. I've referenced it in my copy of Raymond La Bar's book "Bayonets of Japan".

Many thanks, Chris, once again its been a pleasure doing business!
