Predecessor to modern fencing weapons as we know them, the Rapier is very nearly the progenitor of a line of swords that emphasizes precision, agility, technique, and a counter-and-thrust style that has eventually become the modern sport of fencing. Fairly typical for its make, this swept-hilt rapier possesses all the hallmarks of the highly stylized hilts that became fairly popular and for good reasons. In addition to reasons of style, dramatic flair, and personal taste, these ornate guards fulfilled a specific purpose – defense of the hand. The guard of this rapier has two pieces, in two positions – the standard position and an upper guard. The standard guard is a simple circular quillon with a bar-guard, while the upper guard is any additional quillon, formed into a circle and a rectangle about the ricasso of the blade. This two-part guard provides protection to the hand and to the fingers, when the rapier is held with the thumb and pointer-finger forward. Three other quillons sweep downward, to provide marginal protection to the rest of the hand, should a strike be directed lower. The grip of this rapier is steel-wire wrapped, while the pommel is simple and effective. Anyone looking to learn something farther from modern fencing and closer to medieval dueling would be well-served by a good rapier like this one.

    I am very impressed with the quality of this sword with this price. I was concerned that buying a rapier online might not turn out so well. Luckily, this sword proved me wrong. The simple, yet cool design on the hilt accents my Musketeer outfit perfectly. Placed in a black leather Rapier Frog makes this sword look great.
    The costume wouldn’t be complete without it.
    My only problem I had with it came from my own neglect. The sword is a whopping 44″ long. I stand at 6’1″ with long arms and this sword is almost too long for me. If it was only about 2″ shorter, it would be perfect. Again, this was my error and it was clearly stated in the description. Watch out for the sword length!
    This is a great purchase and was very happy with the speed of the delivery!
