    A question on M7/80 Spitzer HJ knife

    Hi all..i saw for sale this knife with motto on the obverse side (m7/80 spitzer) and the motto...is it legit?? I saw maker marks on the obverse of the blade before but never with the motto...What do you think?
    Many thanks

    Hi Luca

    Absolutely fine, there are many examples from various manufacturers that have the RZM marking on the obverse ricasso, with a motto. Some commentary suggests that obverse ricasso with an RZM is a red flag. This is because there are several fakes that are also marked in this way but it is not correct for all examples, the one you have shown is legitimate.

    Ive posted some fakes with obverse RZM marks and mottos, take a look in the fakes thread and you will see that they are easy to spot compared with the real ones.

    Regards

    Russ
