2/12/18 - This is an original, earlier pre WW2 variation Hitler Youth knife. The blade is inscribed "Blut und Ehre" which means blood and honor. The reverse side is maker stamped "ASSO SOLINGEN". The blade has some light scratch marks and signs of light sharpening after use. The inscription is faint as a result. The blade also has very minor wiggle and movement within the handle. This is very minor play. The handle is excellent and original with no major issues. The scabbard is missing most of the paint , and the leather is in good condition. Guaranteed original and authentic.
