The Hans Endter Fechtuch is a German fencing manual created by Hans Endter some time before 1562.[citation needed] It was previously held by the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg, Germany; it was lost during World War II, and its current location is unknown. The manuscript was analyzed by Carl Michael Wiechmann-Kadow in the 19th century, from whom we know that it is a fragmentary copy of Johannes Liechtenauer's epitome on the longsword; Wiechmann-Kadow speculated that it was based on the Codex 44.A.8,[citation needed] but this may simply be because he was not aware any other copies of the epitome.
