    Deutsches Jungvolk knife - real or fantasy?

    I know these are controversial in some quarters. But ron wienand has seen 4-5 in 50 years and tom johnson just sold one and describes them in a book fwiw; so apparently they're rare. Anyhow this surfaced in ny state recently. Comments appreciated....

                Have more pix but using another's puter 'coz of the storms.. But yes scabb is magnetic, snap is the commonplace 'stocko', the emblem is pinned (and slightly curved), the runners are 'zink gray,' and in all, a scaled-down hj knife. In hand quite convincing! Thanks for all remarks no matter what, david

                    Well known late war variation. I have found 3 directly from US Army veterans who returned home at the end of the war. This style knife was a standard camp knife the Solingen manufacturers utilized mid-war and converted to an HJ knife from existing stocks. The Stocko brand snap is also on the Bulgarian Youth Knife known to be of wartime origin, so also substantiates the pre-end-of-war existance.
                    Conversion is noted by the removal of the scabbard runners and then re-riveted runners post installation of the HJ Diamond. You can tell this by grinding of the rivet and the finish missing around the copper head of the rivet.
                    The brown felt washer is missing from this one and is of the same type of material seen on NPEA Student Dagger.
