    Default HJ knife ANTON WINGEN JR

    I have always wanted a HJ knife with motto. I just picked it up at the Allentown Show. Let me know what you think. I hope that I posted this in the correct section.

    looks like a mess, scabbard looks repainted, large gaps around the grips, these normally fit perfect, the button on the pommel, HJ knives don't have these, the etching looks fake big time, photo etched maybe, them ugly silver diamonds, they maybe real, collectors & friends in DE. avoid them, stick with gold, here is a link to help you,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWN6d5w4S3A good video but I wouldnt buy anything from him too high, and some stuff have issues,

    this is good info. too the chart below, I have had 3 HJ motto knives, 1 left, they all measured up to this, I was going to pm you when that knife got to your price range but it went around $850, good luck & be careful.

    I returned this one. I kept the other one I posted. I would like to get an example with this kind of pommel.
