    The knife and scabbard are genuine but the motto has been added by someone, it is not a manufacturer produced motto.

    It would be interesting to get some better pics of the motto side of the blade to see if there is evidence of the original motto.

    Who is selling it?

    Regards

    I've got two Gottlieb Hammesfahr HJ knives, an early and a late one (you can have a look at them in the forum). As Russell has told you, the scabbard and the blade are authentic but the strangely added motto has simply spoilt the knife. The motto is more than disgusting. The price is really low for a M7/67 HJ knife, but I would never buy it: I wouldn't like to set my eyes on such a horrible motto which spoils the blade and, by extension, the knife. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the extra pic.

    The original motto could have been well worn away and perhaps someone tried to trace over it with a dremel tool or something similar.

    Because early-period HJ knives (with a visible motto) are generally more expensive than later ones.
