Description

Details

The Schlaeger Rapiers utilise a popular swept hilt, modified to accommodate our schlaeger blades in 37” (SH1099) and 43” (SH1098) lengths. These tapered blades provide a superior balance compared to the traditional parallel-sided schlaegers, making for a faster sword.

Our Renaissance-style Rapiers trace their origins to early 17th century Europe, where swordplay with the Rapier was considered an essential part of a gentleman’s education and was often used in resolving gentlemanly disagreements. Blades generally originated in one of the blade making centres such as Toledo or Solingen, but many differences in styling and hilt materials resulted from the local manufacture of hilts all over Europe.

The Main Gauche, or left hand dagger, was often used with the rapier, providing an added dimension in both offence and defence, and the “Schools of Fence” which proliferated in Europe during this period taught the use of the two weapons in combination. The Main Gauche would often match the Rapier in styling, while incorporating features which maximised the effectiveness of the piece.Replacement blades, both live and blunt (for sparring), are available for most of the Rapiers and Main Gauches.

Its a little on the heavy side, as the guard has a lot of material in it, but the balance is ok, the blade flex is good and it handles reasonably. next step up is around £100 more expensive (Posted on 06/06/2014)
