    HJ honour knives

    Hi Guys,

    I have been checking the update from **** and came across this Fahrtenmesser. I have never seen anything like this (well, I am new on the HJ fever anyway).

    Can anybody tell me about it? Like a bit of history or at least where to find a bit more info about it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards

    Antonio

    I think this dagger is sort of an honourary status .
    I could be wrong , just my opinion .

    According to Angolia it is an unofficial knife which existed prior to standardization.

    Some people refer to these as honour knives, but as mentioned above, they are regarded as unofficial knives made prior to standardisation. From memory, there are at least 3 different designs on the pommel and some blades are plain, others with varying etched mottoes.

    Regards
