Duel with "Flambergen" 16th century. Woodcut from Petrarcas representation of a unit train, Augsburg, by Steyner, 1539. On the left side, note the left Unterhau from a right stance ending in a Henaging gaurd.  On the right side, note the tight stance for the Zornhua (rage cut). Though entitled "Flambergen", the Bidenhanders (two-handed swords) here are straight bladed.
