We have two fully illustrated articles in our Call to Arms series on the Features page. They cover German Longsword and Italian Rapier.

You can find a healthy amount of information on my school's (Schola Saint George) website - in addition to documents, videos, and more. We are primarily Italian Longsword, but do delve into and adapt Fiore with I:33, polearm, lance, spear, dagger, empty hand, and other systems you might find of interest:

With single handed swords, many techniques of the messer are applicable. Here are some I.33 and messer resources:

http://www.thearma.org/Manuals/I33-guards.html

http://www.schielhau.org/talmesser.html

http://www.schielhau.org/lebkommer.html

I also recommend "Fighting with the German Longsword" and Codex Wallerstein for longsword techniques (and in the case of Wallerstein, some messer techniques). The Medieval Sword and Shield, by Hand and Wagner is also good for I.33 resources. Grab those up when you feel you're ready to sink some money into book resources.
