Here's something just in from Austria. Notice in all these pictures the finish on all the fittings, this is not a patina, this is an applied finish at the time of manufacture, looking for information on this finish, first time I have seen it and it looks great.The carving on the grip is a lot better than my poor pictures show.

I have seen that type of finish on a few early hirschfangers before. It resembles the finish sometimes used on the frames of firearms known as case hardening but it not exactly the same. Case hardening is accomplished using heat but I don't know the exact process. The finish on the hirschfanger may have been executed using chemicals -and then applying a coat of lacquer to protect the finish. I'm not sure but think this is correct. Perhaps the metal masters will comment.

Baz, that one looks like Loggy would love it in his forays into the woods. I think it's pretty cool!

Nice looking piece.
