Here we have a transitional Model 1933 Hitlerjugend Fahrtenmesser. The ricassoed blade on this one looks wonderful. The crisp acid etched “Eickhorn Solingen” / “RZM M7/66” maker marks and “40” date stamp are all nicely executed! The tip comes to a sharp point. The blade rates a solid Exc+. It shows heavy surface scratches throughout along with the slightest wiggle. The original blackened leather buffer pad continues to remain intact. The steel based black enamel painted scabbard looks great. The finish is lost to time. It remains completely dent free! The blackened scabbard leather is crazed and cracked. All of its rivets are intact and the button continues to work well! The zinc-alloy based nickel-silver plated hilt retains 90%+ of its plating. The black bakelite checkered grip plates are in near perfect shape being tightly secured by two steel rivets. The HJ diamond shows some wear and cracking yet retains 92%+ of its enamel! A nice Eickhorn example.
