Overview


A rapier of this identical form and proportions is currently housed in The Royal Armouries (formerly the Tower of London). The flamboyantly formed hilt is both beautiful and functional. Its' forward plates are pierced and show lavish birds among foliage, while the bars of the guard are slender both defending the hand and having an upward loop to catch an opponent’s blade. The heavy pommel allows for a more balanced feel for fighting. The blade is etched on both sides of the ricasso with the Latin phrase CHRISTUS IMPERAT which means “Christ Commands.” Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

    Another beautiful blade
    From: michael, October 06, 2017
    A nice rapier, however it is only slightly longer than the Deschaux rapier which is 37".
    From: Carl, October 05, 2017
    Beautiful workmanship, nice balance, perfectly tempered. This blade is exactly what I'd hoped it would be. Some reviews I've read say the blade is too flimsy. I disagree. It's firm but flexible, exactly the way a working rapier should be. I highly recomend it. I may buy a second one.
