During the 17th century, swordsmanship, particularly with the rapier, was considered to be an essential part of a gentlemans education. This Spanish Basket Rapier is an elegant form of the sword, designed for appeal and for cut-and-thrust style tactics. Possessed of a long and lethal looking blade, this rapier is of a more versatile design. Its blade is made entirely from EN45 high-carbon steel and features a long ricasso at the waist, as well as a diamond shaped cross-section on the blade, for a stiff and strong length, tipped with a fine point. The ornate hilt is finished in polished steel for a fine silver gleam, as well as featuring an iconic design of twisting quillons, arches, and curves, which offers not only an appealing overall look and style, but also a subtle touch of defense that is perfect for wielders hand safe and secure from harm. The hilt is capped with a grooved scent-stopper style pommel as well, which matches the overall look and feel of the blades style. Included with the sword is a wooden, leather wrapped scabbard, for ease of safe-keeping and storing. Overall, this Spanish Basket Rapier is a fine looking yet formidable weapon for any gentleman to carry, one that offers an immediate advantage of both length and versatility when it comes to any duel that might be fought.
