Gustavus Adolphus II Rapier

Be the first to review this product

The hilt of our Gustavus Adolphus II Rapier is very similar to the one used by the legendary Swedish king. The artfully sweeping cup with an openwork, floral patterned base is especially distinctive. The blade is unusually narrow for a rapier and it makes this a surprisingly quick, pleasantly lightweight, and deadly weapon. The textured grip is made of wood wound with black wire. A ring of twisted copper-coloured wire separates the grip from the pear-shaped pommel at the top and the quillons at the bottom. Comes complete with scabbard.

Product Description

Details

Gustavus II Adolphus was king of Sweden from 1611 to 1632, but he is still known as one of the most impressive people in the history of Sweden. One of the major actors of the 30 Year War, he died on the battlefield near Lützen. His romantic career led the German Lutherans in particular to consider the war hero a martyr. Until he drew his last breath, the monarch's boon companion was his rapier – the same one that was the prototype of this model.
The hilt of our Gustavus Adolphus II Rapier is very similar to the one used by the legendary Swedish king. The artfully sweeping cup with an openwork, floral patterned base is especially distinctive. The blade is unusually narrow for a rapier and it makes this a surprisingly quick, pleasantly lightweight, and deadly weapon. The textured grip is made of wood wound with black wire.
