This elegant, historically inspired rapier comes with a surprise that made the owner a formidable foe in battle or while dueling. A beautifully turned, all steel stiletto rests in the scabbard of the rapier to be used with the off hand for a two hand attack or close quarters self defense. This unique set comes with a twist, literally. Unscrew the triangular shaped blade from the stiletto handle and remove the screw in the pommel to attach the wicked blade to the pommel for a dual threat with the sword! An important collectible in the evolution and experimentation of weapons. Rapier has 1085 high carbon steel, fully tempered blade with matching steel parts and genuine bone grip. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

Raper:
  • Overall: 43"
  • Blade: 35" long
  • Wt: 2 lbs
Stiletto:
  • Overall: 10-1/2"
  • Blade: 6"
A similar weapon dated 1594 can be seen at the Tojhusmeet in Copenhagen and the book Kombinations Waffen, plate 135.

Very nice item! I can say it is well made and has a bone handle. The small blade has a sheath on the scabbard and will install on the handle of the main blade, however this seems to be pretty dangerous, when installed. Overall well made with quality materials and the blade will bend quite a bit without any bending, indicating the temper is done pretty well also.

I just wanted to say this is not safe. I have been collecting and using swords for over 25 years and affixing a blade to the pommel is not a good idea.Having a blade facing you is not a good idea. It is interesting idea just not safe.
