Default about one-piece iron "dusacks"?

Like many others I was initially decieved by the woodcut illustrations of European swordsmen practicing with wooden dummy dusacks, and thought they depicted actual swords with the blade continued in front of the fingers like a knucklebow. Finding out that the objects depicted were wooden practice swords that did not closely resemble the real swords they represented has not entirely discouraged my interest in the concept/shape. In fact, I am currently engaged in making steel versions of these. I have heard that there are "period" examples of such objects as these bladed knucklebow steel swords, but have not been able to find any detailed info.
Does anyone know anything or have access to a photo of such a thing?
