Musketeer Rapier

#500784
$265.00

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.

    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.

This dagger has cut-outs and notches to slow or disrupt an opponent's blade, while the hand is well-protected by the knuckle bow. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Matching rapier available. Can be sharpened for additional fee.
