OVERVIEW

Circa 1590

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.

Can be personalized with 3 Initials (select at right).

Musketeer Rapier
Make no mistake this is a beautiful well made rapier. I ordered it along with the main gauche which is also well done. The rapier was back ordered and i waited forever for it to show . I had it sharpened, I have had around a dozen blades sharpened by MRL and have always been happy with the result. But this time i was let down, the bevel on the blade never really went to sharpness but the worst thing was the point got rounded off. The point is everything on a rapier. I can press on it with my finger an just make a harmless dent. I could never do that with my other rapier.

Battle Rapier!
A wonderful rapier, beefier and rock solid like a military rapier should be! As the matching main gauche, it is nicely decorated with a fine scabbard of blue. A fine addition for any collection!

A lovely sword
Has a very nice weight to it, and just looks gorgeous.
It came very well packaged, and arrived rather quickly once it had shipped out.
I am very much considering getting the matching Gauche to go with it.

Spectacular Rapier
I just received this in the mail today.  As expected, it was well wrapped and packaged to protect the contents.  Upon opening it, I immediately smiled in admiration at the beauty of this rapier.  This is the second rapier I've purchased from MR.  I have also purchased a sword and dagger.  In all cases, the workmanship, etc. have been outstanding and exceeded my expectations.  This one, as my others was ordered sharpened.  Let's face it, if I'm going to own a sword/rapier it just as well be real.
I'm truly impressed by everything thus far purchased from MR and this new addition will certainly be proudly displayed.  If you've been considering this particular piece, you will not be disappointed.  It's absolutely beautiful, well balanced, and a formidable weapon to be sure.
Glad I purchased it.

The rapier is well made although, the handle's wire rapping is an 1/8" short of the handle. The balance of the sword is good. The basket hilt provides good coverage of the hand. I ordered the sharpened rapier, the edge is good and even throughout the blade. The scabbard is well made. The scabbard is made of a rubber like material, which allows it to bend when the rapier is out of the scabbard.
