This 17th-century dueling rapier has a hand forged, steel blade with a flattened oval cross-section. A heavily carved horn grip mimics the twisted metal of the hilt and has a single steel accent wire that provides an excellent grip while dueling. Includes leather scabbard. Overall 44-1/4 inches.
This is a perfect example of a German military cut-and-thrust swept hilt carried by the Munich Town Guard. The slightly shorter blade and stout hilt were perfect for breaking up a street fight or tavern brawl, as the town guard was often employed to do. Our replica has a sharp, well-tempered 1065 high carbon steel blade, steel pommel and guard, and wire-wrapped wood grip.
