OVERVIEW

Circa 1590

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).

Wedding present win!
Purchased this one as a wedding gift for a friend. The engraving was terrific as usual, the balance and craftsmanship felt wonderful to behold. He was thoroughly delighted with it upon opening, I love getting gifts for friends here! His wife also received a gift purchased from Museum Replicas, but that is another review to tell of!!!

I absolutely love the look of this sword. The handle is beautiful, and the three-ring hilt is artful. BUT, I ultimately ended up exchanging it for the swept-hilt rapier. I found the Deschaux to be a little too long for me (I'm only about 5'9") and it kept banging into things when I wore it. Also, I found it to be very heavy and hard to handle quickly. I think the weight and the balance and part of the problem, and it being the wrong size for me also contributed. The swept-hilt rapier feels much more natural in my hand. If you're a more compact person like me the swept-hilt is probably a better bet. If you're a big tall goon ;-) then this may be perfect for you. If it's still available when you read this, get the matching left hand dagger.

I am very impressed with my Deschaux Rapier! The workmanship is excellent and it looks and feels great. I only wish I was able to get it sharpened, but other than that, I am very pleased with it.

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
