Dusak, the German Answer to the Foil

In general terms a dusak is a short, single edged sword Central or Eastern Europe. By Meyer’s time the word dusack was repurposed to describe a type of leather or wood training sword. The first image is from the 1570 edition of Meyer. It is followed by a modern reproduction offered by New Stirling Arms. The third image is the dusak offered by MacDonald Arms. Though it looks like metal, it is actually ornately polished wood.
