Conrad Hasselbach in Hamburg: hunting equipment comes to a large extent from the United Kingdom
Most of the equipment comes from the UK: tweed and moleskin jackets and breeches, handcrafted rifle and shotgun bags, wild-style ties and cufflinks, and hand-woven hunting stockings for men and women are included. His attitude to hunting dress code is also clear: "I do not like the efficiency-based culture of the rapid-fire shooters at all. Hunting is not a sport! "The appearance of some contemporaries is really surprising:" Hunters should not run around like a paramilitary partisan association! "Military uniforms are a no-go. But of course he is aware that, for example, a welding dog handler needs a different equipment, notes the expert. Hasselbach himself puts more emphasis on understatement, sturdy thread and leather accessories from the UK, Germany and France.
Conrad Hasselbach: Passion made a profession
The retailer, known beyond the city limits of Hamburg, has two rifles in use. Both are heirlooms: a repeater Steyr-Mannlicher-Puch Kal.7.64 he got from his father, a double rifle. Heym's 9,3 x 74 from the thirties was left to him by his grandfather. His favorite areas are the Lüneburg Heath, Fläming, Ostharz and southern England. Hasselbach still has travel dreams with his hobby even after all these years: Rominten in the former Ostpreussen for Hirschbrunft and chamois hunting in the Alps wants the three-time father of a family. He wishes that his children inherited the Passion as well. The first signs are there: they definitely love the game kitchen and preparation. He reports proudly about his most beautiful experience in the forest: "The first buck - a weak yearling - I overshadowed on an early morning in May with the first shot of excitement. My second shot was sitting! My father had then blown the goat and I was allowed to start it alone for the first time! "
