We found this rare rapier in an old catalog of antique weapons, which had described it as German, and felt we should reproduce it. The hilt shows design aspects of some larger swords, but the knot shaped basket is very unusual and we hadn’t seen its like before. The sword is light and quick and balances in the hand nicely. The parts are steel and the grip is textured leather over wood. The blade is high carbon steel and tempered to a good spring. The scabbard has a highly decorative throat and tip.
