    Figure 6: This man is described in the contemporary etching as a "Knight with lance". He wears a fashionable suit of armour which includes a close helmet or armet with a ribbed visor and plume. Instead of sebaton he wears pointed leather shoes. Over his armour he has a square necked jerkin with deep slashings on the chest and sleeves with obvious landsknecht influences. He carries a heavy lance and a long sword.
