Ein new Kůnstliches Fechtbuch im Rappier ("A New Illustrated Fencing Manual on Rapier") is a German fencing manual written by Michael Hundt and printed in 1611. The treatise presents a system of rapier fencing apparently independent from the contemporary Italian rapier traditions, but bears certain similarities to the treatise Jakob Sutor von Baden would publish in 1612.
The first edition of Ein new Kůnstliches Fechtbuch im Rappier was printed in Leipzig, Germany in 1611 by Nickol Nerlich. It was dedicated to Christian II, Elector of Saxony.
