March 6, 2022

Beneath is presented an excerpt from the Johan Adolf Ludwig Werner manual titled Versuch einer theoretishen anweisung zur Fechtkunst im Hiebe, published in 1824 in Leipzig. It treats about the differences between a cavalry weapon and a typical haurappier, a type of broadsword or spadroon used for Academical Fencing in 18th and 19th century.

This is first of a series of translations presenting different understanding of differences in fencing with cavalry and duelling oriented weaponry.

Series will be concluded with an article summarizing the main differences.
