    That design looks familiar. Is it shown in one of the HJ reference books (Angolia, Baker)? Who is selling it Paul? What's the sales blurb?

    This was shown in Fred J. Stephens Hitler Youth book pg 82.(1973) as being real as well. I wonder if Mr Stephens still believes that these are real? In any case, there are/were no footnotes or references used in the book, only a mention that the knife (this one) was in the Tony L. Oliver collection

    Here are the ones in Fredrick Stephens book (1973).
    These kinda objects seem to have stayed in the same circle of collectors for decades, every now and then they surface again.. just like the SA birds head daggers, on the WAF thread you can read who`s collections they were in long ago, and follow them over time. Poohs that wont flush imho.
    There is sadly no back up, or even a reference to any period info in the above mentioned book, only that they were part of the Tony Oliver collection.
