Anonymous and unfinished treatise not in the Liechtenauer tradition, which is highly interesting since it teaches the use of Ringen, longsword, dagger, quarterstaff, halberd and dussacken. As such it is one of the four currently known original treatises on the dussacken and the 2nd covering the halben stangen and halberd.

It is also one of the goriest illustrated treatises.
