  • Practical Cup Hilt Rapier

    Fencing in the Renaissance style plays a prominent part in historical re-enactment, combining the quickness of light blades with the structure and spirit of the duel. Designed for the rapier fencer with a preference for the cup-hilt style who wishes to spar in safety, This Paul Chen  Practical Cup-Hilt Rapier from Hanwei fits the bill perfectly. The rapier blade is similar in design to the practical blades for the swept-hilts but the length of the tang is adapted to the cup-hilt. The Hanwei SH2262 Main Gauche matches this rapier.

  • The Christus Imperat Rapier

    1 Review(s)

    A rapier of this identical form and proportions is currently housed in The Royal Armouries (formerly the Tower of London). The flamboyantly formed hilt is both beautiful and functional. Its’ forward plates are pierced and show lavish birds among foliage, while the bars of the guard are slender both defending the hand and having an upward loop to catch an opponent’s blade. The heavy pommel allows for a more balanced feel for fighting. The blade is etched on both sides of the ricasso with the Latin phrase CHRISTUS IMPERAT which means “Christ Commands.”

    Overall Length: 119cm
    Blade Length: 103cm
    Blade Width: 2.5cm

  • Bradenburg Rapier

    This stunning rapier has an expertly crafted swept & twisted metal basket. The heavily carved horn grip mimics the elegantly twisted metal of the hilt and is hand wound and inset with a single steel accent wire that provides an excellent grip while duelling. Better yet was the aristocratic, dashing look it gave the wearer while rakishly hanging from the belt. Hand forged high carbon steel blade with flattened oval cross section. Extended, custom engraved ricasso for strength.

    Includes leather scabbard with twisted metal accents completing this magnificent and fast rapier.

    Overall Length: 112cm

  • Classical Swept Hilt Rapier

    Exceptional not only for its exquisite beauty, this rapier is reproduced from an original in the collection of Hank Reinhardt. This sword shows off one of the more graceful and sublime designs from a period when no two swords were made exactly alike. (There were often tremendous differences between rapiers because of varying amounts of skill of the blade maker, the hilt maker, and the cutler who assembled them.) This particular swept-hilt design, which is truly a work-of-art, was in use for over a hundred years. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts, this light, fast and quick rapier uses a high carbon steel blade. Scabbard included. This weapon is featured in Deadly Duels.

    Total length: 114 cm
    Blade length: 93 cm
    Weight: 0.95 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.8 mm
    Blade width (base): 1.95 cm
    Point of Balance (PoB): 11 cm
    Blade: High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Pommel: Peened
    Scabbard: Leather, Wood, Steel

    All sizes are approximate and may vary slightly from piece to piece.
