    I've had this Hitler youth knife for a while. Just not much of a knife collector. I'd like to trade for a gun of some sort. Values on the Internet range from a couple hundred up to $750. I do not have the sheath for it.

    Not sure what all info to list so post questions here and I'll answer. I'll post a picture later today.

    Thanks, Bryan

    You could just keep it and join the Hitler Youth. Plenty of people around here have that group on speed dial and could hook you up.

    I think I'm a little old to be joining Hitler's youth, not that I really think that way either. Here are the pics. 20130516_201340.jpg 20130516_201412.jpg

    Sorry man, I was just joking. It wasn't intended as a slight on you. Cool historical piece.

    It is history for sure, if youhave ever been to Europe and saw the "death camps" it might change your perspective on joking......

    I found a little humor in it, though it really isn't a joking matter. Knife is still available. May entertain cash offers too but still mainly looking to trade.

    That's not a knife you run across everyday. Nice piece of history. Good luck with your trade.

    Knife is still available. I think this might be the wrong forum for historical collectibles but since I'm here already...

    Thanks,
    Bryan

    Any documentation on the knife.
    After the war, there was a huge market in the US for GI souvenir bring backs and a lot of counterfeit war memorabilia was produced. Hitler Youth daggers being one of the most copied.
    I would contact someone who specializes in them.

    Got a link to someone? I wouldn't even know where to start.

    I did look at values before posting and didn't see any mention of counterfeits. I'm certainly not trying too scam anyone but I don't know the history of this knife and I'm not real keen on investing money into authenticating it without any guaranty on selling it.

    I guess if someone is interested in it, please know what you're looking at.

    Thanks,
    Bryan

    I'm not casting aspersions, just passing on some info that I learned the hard way.
    There are numerous You Tube videos showing how to spot real from fakes.
