An outstanding example of an increasingly difficult to locate blade from the Third Reich Period, due to it being an "entry level" piece.  Accordingly, near-mint examples like this are hard to come by.  Exterior of this piece exhibits 100% of the original factory black paint, with only light crazing.  Brown leather integral hanger is both intact and supple.  Light age to the fastening strap.  Hilt shows some surface disruption along the top edge on the back - see photos.  HJ rune is "loose" as it should be on originals, from the rivet having come lose during the past 70 years - this is not a flaw, but a "must have" for any original HJ knife.  Blade is marked M 7/36 for the EF Horster firm, the same firm (one of two) that made the HJ Leader dagger.  Blade grades near mint, with only ultra-light corrosion near the base of the blade on the ricasso.  Leather buffer pad is intact.  Overall, a fine quality specimen.
