That's right Darin. And Ron Weinand accuses the knife sceptics of spreading 'misinformation'.... He refuses to accept (and has refused in the past) that this photo is not evidence for either pre-1933 knives or for those big knives with the engraved handles and blades. One standard for them and another for everyone else it would seem.
Good to see that the thread on WAF has been pinned.
Indeed Russ. Good to see that the thread will remain visible. They should change the title though to avoid any confusion between the Deutsche Jugend and the Deutsches Jungvolk. It could then join our threads at the top of the Google search results and stop people from making any more mistakes with these dreadful knives.
Looks like this thread has been inactive for awhile, but wanted to take a minute and thank everyone who contributed to this. It was a fascinating read and gave me a much better understanding of the importance of researching these items!
Inactive but still very much relevant. These knives continue to be listed and sold on a routine basis. In time many will forget about threads like this and these items will be accepted based on collector lore alone by more and more collectors. Shame.
