    The  gauche is well made. The wire rapping is an 1/8" short of the handle. The gauche is well balanced. The basket is solidly connected to the gauche. The hilt is wide, I am not an experienced sword fighter, so I am not sure of its purpose. The scabbard is well made although it is a deep blue color, not the traditional black. I ordered the gauche sharpened. The gauche's edge is even along the entire length of the gauche.

    Once again, Museum Cutlery has exceeded my expectations! Sharp, stout, beautiful and deadly!

    This is no mere wall hanger, this can be used and the balance, workmanship and quality of materials goes to show that Museum Replicas is doing things the right way!

    Nicely made, with lots of reach & great hand protection & the engraving is lovely as any other I have seen. It handles nicely in my opinion & I am going to purchase the matching Rapier as soon as I can.

    Musketeer Rapier

    The musket, though the prime weapon of the French Musketeers, was a cumbersome firearm, both to load and fire. A good rapier was a necessary second weapon. Our Musketeer rapier is fashioned after those circa 1590. The basket hilt is ambidextrous and a very effective mix of both the cup-hilt and swept-hilt styles. The grip is wood wrapped with twisted wire and the parts of the hilt are plated with gleaming nickel silver. Can be sharpened for additional fee. Matching main gauche available. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

    Leather Cavalier Hat

    No period outfit would be complete without a fine hat to top off a dashing appearance. This hat is one of the best and most affordably priced on the market. Made of fine black leather, the hat has a stylish band with buckle along with the famous up-turned side brim. Simply add a colorful plume of your choice (not included) and you will be the talk of the kings' court. Sizes M or L with choice of either left or right side brim turned up.
