I have had many German bayonets, swords, and daggers with peoples names on them. And with just the last name it's just about impossible to find information on that person. I did have a Imperial M98 dress sword with full name and was able to obtain information through the Solingen archives where most dress edged weapons were made.

Information from "Rangliste der Deutschen Kaiserlichen Marine 1914"
Kapitaenleutnant Hollender - joined th Kaiserliche Marine in 1902
at the time of publication he was an officer on SMS THUERINGEN
He is not listed anymore in 1918 so he might have died in the war.
There is a person named Heinrich Hollender who could be the man

Korvettenkapitän Heinz Hollender. As can be seen from his entry in the "Crew Book" of 1902, he eventually served as an airship officer and was badly wounded in 1918. Re-employed in WW2, he served on the staff of the naval commander Brittany and various armaments inspectorates. Retired from service again on 31 October 1942. Died on 20 July 1954.

Regards
Glenn
