A typical piece of 4th Reich garbage, this one has had a "tune up" to make it look aged. FP

And for the "variant" collectors that some dealers really like to have as their customers. The one listed on eBay has no "HJ" emblem (along with two different looking grips). FP

For those interested, there is further discussion on these packets and others over on the HJ Research Forum:

haha great stuff! Well done LudwigK and the HJ Research forum! Proof is a beautiful thing but knowing how collecting works I will not be surprised if someone comes forward in support of these paper monstrosities in exactly the same way that they refuse to accept that the DJ, BDM, Olympic and RPT 1935 knives are an utter joke . Despite what people say, money drives collecting. It is history's biggest enemy by far :-)

Wittmann has a load of DJ/Olympic/Party Days/HJ knives just arrived on his website with minty wrappers. Prices to $2600. Found in East Germany after the wall came down.

Let's bring LuidwigK's research to the top again and see whether we can coax some responses out of certain parties... Wittmann pairs a paper bag (for the standard HJ knife) with a so-called DJ knife and he gets defended by his pals here on WAF. LudwigK shows conclusively that Olympic bags and others are fakes and..... nothing. I won't mention the names that I'm hoping to see but I'm sure many of you already know...
