A quite rare early PRE 1936 Maker marked P.Lungstrass HJ Knife with its still quite crisp acid etched “Blut und Ehre!” (Blood and Honor!) motto on obverse of the blade.
The blade condition itself is in great condition with no edge damage & very little corrosion or pitting.
The steel based nickel-silver plated hilt is in great shape! It continues to retain 80%+ plating coverage. The black bakelite checkered grip plates are in very good condition being secured by two steel rivets. The HJ diamond is in great condition with quality enamel finish.! A beautiful blade and a rare maker mark!
The scabbard has typical scratch wear seen on HJ scabbards but no obvious dents & whilst the leather belt loop & strap are dry & cracked it is in still good enough condition to rejuvenate if so wanted.
This is a pre RZM made marked HJ knife that would be an important asset to any collection of Third Reich edged weapons or WW2 Weapons. Not your everyday seen HJ Knife !! A great investment !
