    Default Henckels Damast Hirschfänger with gold panel etch

    This short Henckels Hirschfänger has the best blade i have ever seen on a HF sofar!
    This is a true piece of dagger art!!
    The beautiful damast blade has an unique etch being the Wappen of the Kingdom of Bavaria, the Henckels custom made logo is a gold panel etch too and one of a kind!
    The gold leave used on this etch is a 24 karat one, its totally mint!
    The production period will be somewhere beween 1890-1920 looking at the iron fittings.
    I have seen this Henckels logo on a Damast presentation bowie dagger having the year 1896 or 98 in its dedication.
    The iron scabbard fittings are numbered underneath the staples, the scabbard is made of wood covered with leather.
    This special ordered HF is one of a kind, and i consider it my best find ever!
    I will let the pictures do the talking, enjoy them…

    Regards
    Ger

    I don't know anything about these at all but that is a stunningly beautiful piece, fantastic craftsmanship and I guess this must have belonged to someone of high status. I could look at this for hours, Lovely!!

    Impressive Gerrit..Im curious of whos Coat of Arms that may belong to.

    This is so exquisite I would entertain the thought it was presented from Hermann Goring to a well established Forestry officer.
    I cant say enough about the condition of the damast and the 100% gilting on the panel etch.

    Superb and can not be upgraded !

    Thx Scott,

    about rarety… you will not find another one like this, this is a special custom order, and looking at the etch of the Kingdom of Bavaria, it most likely was ordered for or by a very high ranking person, my best guess is high nobelty…. as a damast blade like this was even in the days a very time consuming and expensive one.
    Its unique and one of a kind!

    Best
