    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.

    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!

    I bought this sword to serve as a costume piece and that is does. From an accuracy standpoint it’s a bit off. The “cage” is a bit too large, the blade to thin, resulting in a blade not rigid enough to be accurate in the thrust. The grip is well done and attractive but unfinished on the end where it meets the guard which looks bad. The narrow part of the blade that resides in the “cage” is a weak point due to the thin blade thickness. The sword handles very clumsy and whip like with zero point control. The scabbard is not deep enough for the full length of the blade. Other than all this it looks very nice. However, the matching Main Gauche is a very nice piece. David Cellini.

    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.
