    Nice original knife with a re-painted scabbard.

    Some fakes are RZM marked on the obverse ricasso but this isn't one of them.

    Is there any sign of a motto? Can't really tell in these pics.

    Regards

    Thanks so much, Russell. There is no sign of motto. It is RZM and maker marked, but no motto on it.

    The motto was no longer needed to be included with an announcement from early
    September 1938 in the Mitteilungsblatt der RZM (nr. 19 from September 10).
    This was also published in the Verordnungsblatt der HJ from August 19, 1938
    (order Nr. VI/16)

    Thaks for the info, Wilhelm.

    Don't you think the blade may have been polished? It looks too bright when compared to the hilt, which shows some wear.

    It's a little difficult to tell in the pics but I thought the blade may have been polished, eliminating the motto.

    Being dated 1938 means it could have had one originally, but it may also have never had one, both of which would/could be correct for the date.

    Regards

    Thanks, Russell. A close look does not reveal any sign of a motto, although the blade looks polished. I do think this one originally had no motto, though.

    Thanks again, Russell.

    That's a nice one. My first HJ knife was '38. (No motto)
