In all books sources i find that the katzbalger first in use is around 1520. I found a period picture from aroudn 1510 but when did they used them for the first time.
I found a dagger in the dutch army museum colection from aroudn 1490-1510 wich has an s shaped hilt like a katzbalger.
So does anny on know when they first used them?
