Description

For the most part, swordplay was solely the province of warriors in history. At least, that remained true up until the 16th century, when swordplay became popular with civilians as well, and swords like this Classical Swept Hilt Rapier became common. This swords design is based on a style of rapier that would have been exceedingly popular with the nobility, offering not only an effective sword-design, but also an integral sort of flare that made the sword, and to an extent, its wielder, appear all the more impressive. The sword blade is hand crafted entirely in carbon steel, and it features a diamond cross-section for rigid stiffness, which offers good parrying ability and impressive thrusting strength. The blade also possesses a long ricasso, around part of which wraps the swords impressively ornate swept hilt, which features thick and thin quillons, as well as a straight crossbar and a knuckle-guard. The combination of intricate twists and curves makes this guard impressive to look at, as well as impressively difficult for a blade to reach. The leather-wrapped grip is inlaid with red wire, to add another level of colorful appeal to the swords design, while the hilt is finished off with a straight cylindrical pommel. This Classical Swept Hilt Rapier is, all in all, a fine weapon for any duelist or noble to feature, possessing elegant curves and designs that are sure to appeal to the skilled swordsman with a superior sense of aesthetic.
