This beautiful volume translating and demonstrating Sigmund Ringeck's work on longsword technique arrived today. I snagged it off Thriftbooks for only $28, a fraction of what it typically goes for on the used market as it has been out of print for some time now.

Just got an email letting me know this was available on Thriftbooks. This is an incredible find. This book is out of print and a popular resource in the HEMA community. The same hardcover book on Amazon is going for $700+. I'll take this copy for $28 thank you very much!
I've finally finished going through this entire manual on the basics of German longsword fighting. It's hands down one if the best sword instruction books I've found. Almost all the techniques have matched the in class instruction I've been getting. While I've read through this it's not likely to go back on the shelf since I'm still working the included drills into my daily workout/practice.
