Eisenport, or "Iron Gate", is a variant on (or another name for) Alber.

References to the Iron Gate are found in the work of the Other Masters (14th Century), the Codex Speyer, Jörg Wilhalm, Hans Talhoffer, in the Kölner Fechtbuch (MS Best.7020), in Paurñfeindt, and in Hans Folz. This list is not exhaustive.

Joachim Meyer also has two different Eisenport; one to describe the Italian guard which he calls Schrankhut and the other being an elevated Pflug at eye level.
