By 1550, gun power had started to rule the battlefield.  But loading a gun was a time consuming process so a soldier still needed a good sword, like this one. The blade is a classic sword rapier type, long but able to deliver a sound cut as well as a thrust. The hilt reflects a transitional period when sword makers left off the bars of earlier rapier hilts to make it easier to carry, and where working toward the modern military sword hilt. This kind of sword was used all over Europe and the New World. The original is in the Castle Saint Andrew, Rome. The parts are steel and the grip is wood wrapped in flat leather lacing for a firm grip. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®. Includes scabbard.
  •  Overall: 43-1/4"
  • Blade: 37" long, 1-1/4" wide, 3/16" thick
  • Wt: 2 lbs/4 oz

This is one of my favorites; it is light, fast and quick ! This is a very effective weapon and very well made. This thing is not so much a replica as an example of a type of sword that was very useful on horseback. Joe Brown
