I want to get my brother a WW2 knife or reproduction for christmas. I was thinking either a Hitler Youth knife or a gravity knife, but I'm open to other options. My question is this: What's a good company for usable reproductions? I can't afford a real one unless I stop eating for a while. What sorts of other knives are availible?

My brother's a boy scout and knife enthusiast so I figured this would be perfect.

Id say a Hitlerjugend one. WWII is what interests me. Maybe try a Luftwaffe officers dagger?

There's a shop I recall in London that sells genuine vintage bayonets of all sorts - along with various other military antiques. My friend purchased a modern American bayonet there along with a WWII Swedish one. Unfortunately, I can't recall the name of the place. You could try google local I suppose if you live thereabouts.

Shit you should just get him a 10 inch Garand bayonet. Those are just as cool in my opinion, and relatively cheap compared to an HJ knife.

Or if you want to pay a little more, you should get a Fairbairn Sykes, the commando knife used by the SAS.

Personally, I don't see the point on spending money on a reproduction, never have.

Hey Ohioan haven't seen you around alot lately, good luck finding a knife for your brother.

Yeah not really ontopic but meh. And GunsOfBrixton29 a reproduction is much cheaper and if you're actually going to use it, it would be a shame to pay so much for an original.

Just as a small thing, maybe it's just me, but perhaps nazi memorabilia isn't necessarily a good x-mas present. Especially a reproduction--real antique weapons dealers may be kooks at times, but at least they're generally honest enthusiasts. I've found that people who manufacture "fake" memorabilia can be, well, you probably get where I'm going.
