With its graceful, artistic lines, the rapier has always been a romantic symbol of the Renaissance. The reality is that the rapier is a very deadly hand-to-hand combat weapon, perfectly suited for the swift moves of the duelists of the day. Many hilt forms were tried early on like this three ringed swept hilt. The bone grip is wire wrapping, making for a very secure grip. This is a light, fast and deadly sword with a classical design. Coordinating dagger available #402528. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Includes scabbard. Note: Bone is a natural material and color may vary from off white to tan.
    Can be personalized with 3 Initials (select at right).

    Got mine on deal of the day. Fast, and deadly. My handle wrap only has 3 swirls, while the product picture has 6. But it still looks stunning. Sheath only goes up to the top of the guard, not the whole way in...wished it did.

    I have an older style of this rapier since the late 70's and it is still going strong. I have used it both on stage and in more "live steel" combat exibitions than I can remember and other than a few minor "teeth" it is as good as the day I bought it!

    Finely made rapier, I love the quillon and though the handle is longer than I'm used to, it 'handles' very well, well balanced and it performs moulinets nicely.

    This is an outstanding rapier that I have had for a number years. Light and fast, it is an effective representative of the type. Well made for the most part. Joe Brown

    This is the most lovely rapier I have ever seen. The grip feels good in the hand and the blade is perfectly light.
