This is a light, fast, and deadly sword with a classical design. With its graceful, artistic lines, the rapier sword has always been a romantic symbol of the Renaissance. The reality is that the rapier is a very deadly hand-to-hand combat weapon, perfectly suited for the swift moves of the duelists of the day. Many hilt forms were tried early on, like this three-ring swept hilt. The grip is of authentic bone with hand-wrapped wire, making for a very secure grip. The high-quality sword blade is of hand-forged high carbon steel, tempered for strength and meticulously polished to a superb finish. Hand-crafted by the famed metalsmiths at Windlass Steelcrafts. Complete with a leather scabbard reinforced by a metal throat and chape.
Overall: 46" Blade: 39"Lx¾"W. 3/16" thick. 2 lb./8 oz.
