Description

Rapiers came in all sorts of different hilt styles, many of them divided up by the regions they were favored in. This Spanish Fluted Cup Rapier leaves little question as to where its design originated from, or where its design was most popular. Despite being Spanish in origin, the cup hilt became popular in a number of other areas as well, and could be as far-reaching as any of the other styles of rapier hilts. On this particular recreation, the rapier blade is hand crafted entirely in carbon steel, with a long ricasso and a diamond cross-section, which offers blade-stiffness and rigidity for both thrusting and parrying. The cup hilt is fluted in design, and provides a solid plate of protection for the sword-hand, while the guard itself also features straight bar quillons, and a knuckle-guard, for added hand defense. The grip is wrapped in leather and inlaid with red wiring for greater appeal, and the hilt is topped with a grooved sphere pommel, which continues the detailing of the guard and completes the swords look nicely. The detailing and overall shape of this Spanish Fluted Cup Rapier make it a solid choice for any musketeer to own and wield, and it will not fail to serve well either as a sword to carry in your renaissance costume or display in your collection of arms.
