Jagerstock, Paschen - 1660

A treaty on the use of the hunting stick, from the same guy who brought you: Vollstandige fecht-ring.

Do not be fooled, this is not a German weapon, but a French one. Called bâton à deux bouts or two ended stick (I know all stick have two ends but is seems this one does more than any other), it was a prerequisite of mastery in the French school until the end of the 18th century. It then transferred into the Bâton de Joinville method. Paschen writes about it because he believes it is a great weapon that his fellow countrymen do not learn but should. The French kept an array of sometimes out dated weapons in their schools, some say as a way to keep foreigners from teaching in their country, since most did not practice longsword, halberd and staff anymore.

The Rose couverte French canne group is working on a translation.

Fantastic find! I was completely unaware of this before.

I like swords more than you.

I found some time over a weekend to translate Pascha's 1660 work on fighting with the Jägerstock (Hunting staff). So, here it is: http://www.bruchius.com/docs/Pascha%20H ... %20RvN.pdf
…en A alſoo liggende kan aen B, ſonder eenigh beletſel, met de zijde van ſijn hooft, op het aengeſicht van B, ſoo veel ſtoten als hy begeert. – Nicolaes Petter, 1674.
