Inscription: Inscribed: (on blade, below zodiacal sign for March) Joh. Adam; (on blade, below zodiacal sign for April) Elinger. L
Notes of onscription: Dr. Nickel has suggested that the letter L (?) following the name Elinger might stand for lineavit (?) [trans.: hea has drawn it] which would indicate that Joh. Adam Elinger was probably the etcher.
