The KK 5012 is a German fencing manual authored by Peter Falkner, probably created around 1495. The original currently rests in the holdings of the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, Austria. Dierk Hagedorn notes that the text was written by two scribes: the passages about the long sword and the messer come from one hand, and the sections about dagger, staff, pole weapons, longshield and mounted fencing from another.
