HUBERTUS GERMAN "WAIDBESTECK" HUNTING KNIFE SET / STAG. "In the 16th century the hunter's knife set "Waidbesteck used to be a set of hunting tools composed of an oversize gutting knife and different additional components such as a larding pin and a sharpening steel. As a tool to dismantle hunted game, the gutting knife was equipped with a heavy, broad blade and a short handle. It was also possible to use the gutting knife as a slashing knife to remove brushwood during game-stalking. When traditional hunting grew stronger in the 1930s the demand for an universal hunting tool arose again. It was developed in different design by three German hunt masters who patented their developments/inventions as "Waidblatt".
