Just purchased from the Veterans Family! An Early Model 1933 Hitlerjugend Fahrtenmesser by Paul Seilheimer of Solingen. The blade on this one looks great. The acid etched “Blut und Ehre!” motto is light yet still visible and the “PS Solingen” maker mark and “Gesetzl Geschutzt” paten mark are beautifully executed! The crossgrain is looks wonderful against the light. The tip comes to a sharp point. The blade rates an Exc++. It has a small wiggle to the fit, the tip shows some wear and there is age grey/spotting throughout. The buffer pad is lost to time. The scabbard is steel based and black enamel painted. It shows minsor surface scratches yet holds 95%+ of its original painted finish and continues to remain completely dent free! The brown scabbard leather is in great condition. The snap continues to work well. The steel based nickel-silver plated hilt retains 98%+ of its plating. Typical wear where the snap is. The black bakelite checkered grip plates are in perfect condition and are tightly secured to the hilt with two solid nickel-silver rivets. The HJ diamond retains 99%+ of its enamel. A great piece that is sure to please!
