Hugh maintains the grip of his right hand and grabs Elijah’s blade with his left in figure 2.

Figure 3 Figure 4
figure3 figure4 As before, Hugh drives the point of Elijah’s dagger into his body with a straight push (figure 4), after ripping it out of his hand to do so (figure 3).

No specific Fechtbuch describes this technique (which isn’t surprising since only the Codex Wallerstein even mentions the French Thrust), but this is a simple extrapolation of the other dagger takings.
