This German presentation Hirschfänger dagger is a replica of the fine daggers awarded by Hermann Göring to forest wardens. It has a blade forged from 1055 high carbon steel which is lavishly etched in forest imagery on both sides. The guard and pommel are finely cast with intricate detailing in brass. The grip is polished wood. The dagger comes with a companion scabbard of leather with a brass chape and locket.

As the Reichsjägermeister (State Hunting Master as appointed by Adolf Hitler) Herman Göring oversaw the regulation of hunting and the conservation of German forestry amidst his many other duties. An avid hunter himself, Göring typically awarded these elaborate daggers in presentation ceremonies to game wardens and such a dagger would be a great prize to be worn in ceremonies and in uniform by those who received one. These Hirschfänger hunting daggers are descended from the hunting swords and daggers used to dispatch wounded game and these ceremonial examples are typically festooned with the imagery of wildlife, forests and the hunt. Though he numerous other duties, hunting and the culture of the traditional German Hunting Lodge was one of Göring’s greater passions.

This replica example features the date it was awarded, as well as the etched signature of Herman Göring on one side; etched in scrollwork on the other side is ‘’für Verdienste um das Deutsche Waidwerk’’ (‘’For Services to German Hunting’’).
