This is a genuine Third Reich Emil Voos Solingen Hitlerjugend Fahrtenmesser or Hitler Youth dagger or knife that we have owned for several years in exactly the condition in which an American veteran brought it home from Germany in 1945 (see the "CONDITION" paragraph at the bottom).
It has the motto Blut und Ehre! (Blood and Honor!) etched on the right side of the blade. The RZM double-circle logo and the letters M7/2 above 1938 are deeply stamped into the left side of the blade at the hilt. The leather buffer adjacent to the hilt at the top of the blade is original and in excellent condition. The knife blade has never been sharpened or cleaned but is exactly as it was when we first pulled it out of the scabbard. The checkered handles are in excellent used condition, held in place by the original rivets. The plating on the non-magnetic handle is near-perfect and 98% there. The condition of the HJ diamond on the handle is excellent and obvious in our photo.
In photographing the knife and especially the blade, we had the opportunity to make the blade look perfect, but chose light and angles that show the very light pull marks and spiderweb spots in the most obvious possible way. This is an excellent blade with light pull marks barely showing on top of the original factory finish.
The scabbard is of the original pressed steel type (not diecast pot metal) and it has a set of springs riveted inside to grip the blade firmly. The 5-¾ inch long scabbard has 95+% of its black paint and the supple pebbled leather hanger is absolutely authentic to it. All parts of this knife and sheath measure exactly to the dimensions specified by the RZM. The knife is 9-9/16 inches long, 5-½ inches of that being the blade from the hilt to the tip.
CONDITION: The reason that this knife is in such fine and complete condition is interesting all by itself. It was advertised as a "German knife" in a small town Pennsylvania newspaper many decades ago. A 12 year old boy convinced his parents to take him to the address in the advertisement and he bought the knife and a bayonet right off the garage wall of the man who brought them home after World War II.
We have not cleaned this knife since we got it. It is a superb Third Reich knife offered for considerably less than any comparable Hitlerjugend Fahrtenmesser we could find anywhere following an in-depth search of the big-name dealers on the internet and in auction catalogs. We have kept the knife out of the scabbard and will ship it out of the scabbard if the buyer prefers.
