Default HJ Knife Makers Database

Having participated in similar ideas in the cross section run by Blitz ive been plotting with whether a similar idea might work with youth knives. I think it might prove interesting to see what makers there are in members collections, although iam sure we only have a very small percentage of those out there i hope it might provide a useful exercise.

Listing by maker and then early, transitional or late with any details of interest should be straight forward.....i hope!

if you do have any HJ's please drop down what you have and i will update the list as it grows ( i will order them as the manufacturer appears in the rzm numbers M7/1 - M7/118 )

thanks for posting Ade, i cant find a RZM number that relates to these, so i guess maybe they stopped producing or remain an unknown code, ive seen this logo before, but googling the manufacturer name hasnt turned up anything. Looks like you may have a scarce maker there Ade.

Ive also just read that there was an estimated 20 million HJ knives produced should be enough to go round then
