Nagel on all-steel dussacks?

I'm currently making a sharp version of the (fairly) simple all-steel dussacks, in their form best known from several fencing treatises. There they are obviously training weapons and probably made from wood. What intrigues me is the addition of a Nagel on many period depictions:

I have never seen a sharp steel version of this, be it original or a reproduction. A&A makes a training dussack with a Nagel but that's all I've come across.

Does anybody have any pics of original dussacks of similar shape?

All-steel dussacks I saw were not fitted with a nagel, including the one I own.
