Hello

I know the word "dussack" can mean a number of different things. But, if we restrict it to the "short stout german saber -like weapon" (as seen here: http://www.arts-swords.com/item/DT-DT5174.asp ), does anyone else but Del Tin make it? I've been growing rather interested by it lately.

thanks,

Pierre

Thank you for the link. However, if you compare what you have shown vs the link I posted, you will note they look quite different. I'm not saying that your link isn't a dussack, because it is. But the word has been used in many different ways, and I'm less interested in those.

I about know dusacks as it relates to Joachim Meyer's book and personally use a wooden one to train with. I have heard quite a lot of discussion as to whether the dusack was a steel weapon or a wooden training tool (like a waster). I don't know.

I was under the impression that only two metal examples are known to exist and no wooden ones have survived. See this thread:

And this one: http://www.myArmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?t=13659

I think we're talking about the later, complex-hilted versions in this thread, though, right?

Happy

Yes - I thought I was clear on that fact, but apparently I wasn't Sad I meant the weapon that is quite similar to the Sinclair Saber. I read the review on the Del Tin model, and I was hopping someone had managed to produce an even more accurate version but alas, this doesn't seem to be the case.

Thanks,

Pierre
