Looks like a nice conditioned #1692 pattern hunting dagger.

The scabbard dedication is a nice touch, how certain are you of provenance and that it was period done?

This dagger lay in the collection of my grandfather. Which took part in the Second World War. I do not know the story of how the dagger came to my grandfather. Therefore, I want to clarify for myself the period of manufacturing this item.

The hirschfanger is fine but I do not like the dedication on the lower mount, the ADJV or Allgemeine Deutsche Jagdschutzverein ceased to be in existence in Oct/Nov 1934, this hirschfanger was made in 1935, I'm not sure how a dedication from a defunct association can give a hirschfanger to a SS officer in this case.
