    I totally agree with Daren ... If an item needs too much explanation "just to sell itself" , then it will be a hard sell down the road.
    I prefer items with " no explanation needed !
    Easy sell ... Period ... !

    So it follows that any knife with an Olympic symbol and a Swastika is a fake. Case closed

    This is not as straight forward as it sounds. There is however, for those interested in doing some research, plenty of information on this in the UM magazines leading up toâ–¬and beyond the 1936 Olympics. A particularly interesting article titled Olympia=Andenken-Olympia=Abzeichen can be found in the May 15th 1936 ausgabe.
    I dont agree at all that any Olympic item that has a swastika on it is a Fake because i know this is not the case, (not awards as has been mentioned, but actual items used during the Olympics) but do of course agree that these HJ Olympic knives are post war Fantasy pieces, as well as many other things.
    There is also plenty of period proof that Olympic items that were not supposed to be made, were indeed made, and in some cases confiscated. These are also mentioned in some detail in more than 1 period source.
