Offered is this early motto bladed Hitler Youth Fahrtenmesser.  This knife is an average specimen, showing the effects of being carried by a young boy.  The scabbard has lost all its original finish, and appears to have been helped along in that effort.  The handle keeper strap has lost the bottom half of the press stud and has become separated from the top rivet.  The knife is missing the leather washer, and most of the red enamel from the lower point of the diamond.  The blade has seem some sharpening and use, but the full shape seems to still be intact.  The “Blut und Ehre” motto is present, but a bit faded from cleaning.   Marked for the Hartkopf & Co. Solingen, with that makers logo.
