Hans Lebkommer

"Hans Lebkommer" is the attribution given by Christian Egenolff for the severely abridged version of the messer teachings of Johannes Lecküchner that he included in his 1530s fencing manual, Der Allten Fechter gründtliche Kunst. The surnames "Lebkommer" and "Lecküchner" are probably both references to the trade of baking gingerbread (Lebkuchen), and would therefore be somewhat interchangeable. This version of Lecküchner's teachings was almost certainly created long after his death in 1482, but there is no other authorship information so the treatise will be presented here.
