History of the Centre of Percussion

Hello all!

I have just finished a new article that might be of interest to sword enthusiasts:

History of the Centre of Percussion

This is of course about the history of the notion, not of the physical object itself, which for all we know has always existed ;) From the initial scientific studies to the use in late fencing manuals, the meaning of the term evolved slightly and you can only fully understand what it meant to historical people when you are aware of that evolution.

Hope you'll enjoy it! At least I've learned much while writing it :)

Regards,

Glad you liked it!

I should actually thank you, as I wouldn't have found some of the later sources quite as easily without the names and info you gave in past threads :)
