Dagger length 39.7 cm, total length 41.3 cm, weight 729 g. One of Hermann Göring's few namely dedicated hunting daggers. Somewhat more laborious constructions by Professor Zeitner were presented by Hermann Göring for merits regarding German hunting i. a. to Mussolini or Hiroshi Oshima (cf. Hermann Historica Auction 27, lot no. 5163, or Auction 28, lot no. 5178), but also to Finnish Marshal Mannerheim, Sepp Dietrich and General Franco. Willy Sachs (1896 - 1958), industrialist, SS-Obersturmbannführer and Wehrwirtschaftsführer in the Third Reich, bearer of the Bundesverdienstkreuzes (tr. "German Federal Cross of Merit") and honorary citizen of Schweinfurt, Mainberg and Oberaudorf. In 1933, Willy Sachs enters the NSDAP. He maintains close contact to SS-Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler and Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring who can follow up their hunting passion on his Bavarian estate. Sachs who supports the NSDAP and the SS with generous donations is appointed SS-Obersturmbannführer and Wehrwirtschaftsführer. Himmler is a guest at the inauguration ceremony of the Willy-Sachs-Stadion (named after him until today), which Sax has built in Schweinfurt. An important object of contemporary history.
