Der Kůnstliche Fechter ("The Artful Fencer") is a German fencing manual written by Theodori Verolini and initially printed in 1679. Verolini's treatise contains teachings on the long sword, dussack, and rapier that seem to be derived from the earlier work of Joachim Meÿer or Jakob Sutor, as well as a complete repetition of the 1674 grappling treatise of Nicolaes Petter.
Der Kůnstliche Fechter was first printed in 1679 by Würzburg publisher Joann Bencard. This seems to have been its only printing, but book 4 is a reprint of Joann Christoph Widenmann's 1675 printing of Nicolaes Petter's 1674 wrestling manual Klare Onderrichtinge der Voortreffelijke Worstel-Konst.
