The Imperial Forestry Lieder`s Dagger was authorized for senior foresters and forest industry officials. The design of the dagger was not regulated by strict standards, that is why they could differ with individual characteristics depending upon the manufacturer. This sketch was probably designed by Casberg for the company C.Eickhorn. The dagger on Casberg`s sketch looked more decorated and embellished compared to patterns of the Forestry Dagger produced in that period.
