  • Practical Rapier - 43" Blade

    1 Review(s)

    The Schlaeger Rapiers utilize a popular swept hilt, modified to accommodate Hanwei's 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.

    Paul Chen's 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 centers such as Toledo or Solingen, but many differences in styling and hilt materials resulted from the local manufacture of hilts all over Europe.

    Fencing in the Renaissance style plays an important part in the historical re-enactment combining the quickness of light blades with the stucture and spirit of the day.  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.

  • Musketeer Rapier

    The musket, though the prime weapon of the French Musketeers, was a cumbersome firearm, both to load and fire. A good rapier was a necessary second weapon. Our Musketeer rapier is fashioned after those circa 1590. The basket hilt is ambidextrous and a very effective mix of both the cup-hilt and swept-hilt styles. The grip is wood wrapped with twisted wire and the parts of the hilt are plated with gleaming nickel silver.

  • British Royal Navy Officer's Sword - 1805 Pattern

    2 Review(s)

    Up until 1805 the Royal Navy did not have a regulation pattern sword. The sword that was introduced was modelled on the 1803 pattern infantry sabre that was previously carried by Navy and Marine officers. The 1805 pattern sword was used by Lord Horatio Nelson and he was no doubt armed with it at his most famous battle, The Battle of Trafalgar. After he was killed at the battle his sword was returned to England and is now on display in the Nelson Museum, Great Yarmouth, England. This sword was in constant use until it was replaced in 1827 by a newer model. The polished blade has been forged from AISI 1065 High Carbon Steel and has been well tempered.

  • British Royal Navy Officer's Sword - 1827 Pattern

    The brass hilt features a lion-head pommel, adopted from the earlier 1805 pattern swords of Nelson’s navy, an imitation ray-skin grip wrapped with brass wire and a crown and fouled anchor motif on the guard. It features a hinged latch to allow it to be attached to the scabbard, a requisite for a naval officer’s side arm, especially when on-board during a gale! The AISI 1065 high carbon steel blade is tempered and decorated with etchings. One side features the Crown and Fouled Anchor of the Royal Navy, the other side featuring the Royal Coat of Arms. The wooden scabbard is covered with black leather and features decorated brass fittings and 2 suspension rings.

  • British Cutlass

    The Cutlass; the iconic sword of the seaman. Simple and effective, its robust design was used by Western navies for centuries. It was short for the close quarters of ship fighting, yet not so long as to be tangled in rigging or disadvantaged belowdecks. British, American and Australian navies were still doing routine cutlass drills for their sailors into the early years of the 20th century. It was not until 1936 that the Royal Navy officially relegated the cutlass to a ceremonial weapon.

    There have been numerous accounts of enthusiastic boarding crews ably armed with cutlasses that have overwhelmed larger ships that would have outgunned them in a ranged fight. Such as the 1801 action between the British 14-gun Speedy and the Spanish 32-gun Gamo. A crew of 40 British sailors subdued a frigate three times their number by climbing over their railings, cutlasses in hand and calling for reinforcements that did not exist! The frightened Spanish soon surrendered.

    This cutlass, made by Universal Swords of India, features a tempered high carbon blade that has been blackened. The hilt is of steel with a grip of brown painted wood sandwiched over the riveted tang. It comes with a leather and riveted scabbard with a brass chape.

    Total length: 75 cm
    Blade length: 60 cm
    Weight: 1.134 kg
    Blade thickness (base):  5.6 mm
