Description

Given that training with a sword became a formal part of a gentlemans education during the 16th and 17th centuries, sword duels began to flourish. This Brass Crown Basket Rapier is a stunning design that depicts the favored style of swords in this era of formalized dueling and gentlemanly demeanor. Designed in mimicry of the cut-and-thrust style of sword, this rapier possesses an impressively sized blade that is hand crafted from carbon steel. A long ricasso is perfectly suited for parrying, while the diamond-shaped cross-section ensures that the blade possesses a stiff form that is designed for deadly thrusting attacks and light cutting strikes. The rapiers hilt is a truly unique accent as well, possessing intricate twists and turns that go above and beyond the typical, creating a complex yet ornate form of brass-finished quillons that is not only wildly appealing to the eye, but also incredibly effective as a defense, too. The wood grip is broken up by metallic spacers on the hilt, and the swords overall design is finished by a sphere pommel that complements the overall design. Included with the sword is a wooden, leather wrapped scabbard, as well, which is perfect for safe-keeping and carrying. A sword can say a lot about a duelist, and this Brass Crown Basket Rapier is not different, offering up a rich and impressive look that is sure to speak volumes to all those who see it.

    As a Master Fencing Instructor, I’m always looking for quality in the swords and other items I use for instruction and reenactments. Not only was the quality of these Rapiers outstanding, but purchasing them from Medieval Collectibles was an absolute delight. As a company, they’re friendly, helpful and, above all, knowledgeable of their product line. They’re very efficient and well-organized.
