Description

Carl Schmidt was a blacksmith who decided to start making German knives in 1850 where he was well known for his excellence in manufacturing high quality knives in Solingen. This HJ blade has no motto on obverse and the maker trademark, "RZM M7/84", number "38" on reverse.   Also, the reverse side of blade near tip has some scratching approximately 2" in length close to the cutting edge.  The scabbard shows some wear from age but retains 80% of original paint.   There is some wear on the leather strap.  Black celluloid grip plates and diamond insert are in mint condition.
