Hitler Youth Knives

/Tag:Hitler Youth Knives
Hitler Youth KnivesHitler Youth Knives (sometimes referred to as HJ Knives or Hitler Youth Daggers) were used by the Hitler Youth (Hitler Jugend) of Germany during the WW2 era. Hitler Youth was essentially the Nazi version of the Boy Scouts, which also included girls (Bund Deutscher Mädel), and these knives were awarded to boys after passing state examinations. Early version of the HJ Knives (through 1937) included the etched motto, “Blut und Ehre!”, which translates to “Blood and Honor!”

For years Hitler Youth Knives have been a staple in every German WW2 collection, and things haven’t changed! Whether you’re a beginning collector or a seasoned one, if you don’t have one of these in your display this is the time to buy!

Hitler Youth Knife — Heinr. Boker & Co Solingen

This item has Sold or is On Hold
A very nice early Hitler Youth Knife (HJ knife) by the seldom seen maker, Heinr. Boker & Co, Solingen. Unlike many HJ knives we come across, this one has seen little use. The blade has a beautiful cross grain, is still sharp (naturally, no signs of having been re-sharpened), and both the maker’s mark and the motto (Blut und Ehre!) are absolutely superb in detail and quality. It doesn’t get much better than this!...

HJ Hitler Youth knife by M7/85 (Arthur Evertz)

This item has Sold or is On Hold
Here’s a good clean WWII Hitler Youth knife by very hard to find maker Arthur Evertz (RZM M7/85). The knife and scabbard show average signs of wear from use and time. The scabbard retains 90% + of the paint on the back and approximately 70% on the front. The leather strap is worn in the center by the rivet. It is weak in that area and caution should be used when handling this.
