Product Information

This is a tiny Fahrtenmesser or Hitler Youth knife. It is much smaller than the usual encountered H.J. weapon and was specially produced for a presentation gift to the young people from the N.S. Youth Organization, who helped at the Olympic games events. Unlike its larger cousin this petite dagger has stag grips, while the normal issue one has black plastic grips. The enameled insignia at the middle of the grip is smaller but beautiful. The blade is quite beautiful with the crowned bear of the city (Berlin) and the N.S. sports eagle with the familiar Olympic rings. The saying “Zum Ruhme des Sports zur Ehre des Vaterlandes” is reminiscent of the actual spirit of these 1936 games. It means: “The Glory of Sports is the Honor of the Fatherland.” This was produced by the firm of Emil Voos of Solingen and comes with the original packaging.

I was very lucky to get this direct from a family in a small village outside Munich, a few years back,. through a contact of mine in Germany. The family were keen not to broadcast their history, but did explain some of the background and what the grandfather and even father had been involved with, both of them now deceased. As I live in the Uk , they were more happy to deal with me and avoid any funny questions in Germany. I was lucky enough to obtain the HJ Cap and main dagger that also belonged to the father, along with this knife and then a few months later they called me to say they had found an old belt and buckle of his, which they sent me, so I have all the items from the same owner. I will list the rest when I get time and prefer to keep them all togther if possble.

I was also lucky to have produced from them the grandfathers 1st pattern Luftwaffe dagger and a few other items they had...these will also be listed and family name details etc given upon request.

An opportunity to acquire one of the rarest daggers available...great condition
