I've got some very basic Lichtenaur longsword behind me, I also got Toblers book ,fighting with the german longsword. I'd like to get more into messer as well, but I'm not sure about manuals. I don't know german and I cant seem to find any translations. Oh I have talhoffers medieval combat but I don't find it very helpful. I have no WMA groups with 6 hours drive but I have sparring partners.

Something tells me Tobler and youtube WMA videos arent the way to go.
Can anyone recomend anything? Preferably online.
Thanks,

George

There are a number of people working on translations of Leckuchners messer, both in terms of publishing and free-to-web. Also, Mike Thomas (posts as "The Dude" here) has done some work on translating Durrer's messer not sure how far along he is with that or what his plans are.

In terms of Liectenauer, you cant go wrong with searching this forum for refernces. There are several free translations as well as published translations of several fechtbucher.

Where do you live?
.... or I could be completely wrong.

The DVD from Ochs is very good, well constructed and it is available in English.
Search Wikipedia for Liechtenauer and Fechtbücher. You will stumble upon many links to manuscripts.
