  • Swept Hilt Rapier

    This swept hilt rapier was quite popular in the late 16th and early 17th centuries. Our version is hand forged by the skilled artisans at Windlass Steelcrafts and has a blade of high carbon steel with a diamond cross-section. This gives the blade firmness, yet allowing it to be flexible in action. The all-steel guard and ornate pommel are accented with a real bleached, polished bone grip. Includes a full leather scabbard with steel throat and shoe.

    This was one of our most popular rapiers for a number of years and was retired years ago. We are proud to bring back this elegant sword by popular demand for a limited time as one of our Windlass Classics.

    NOTE: Bone is a natural product and may have slight variations from the photo shown, giving each handle a unique "one of a kind" finish.

  • Renaissance Rapier

    2 Review(s)

    The rapier began to develop at around the turn of the 15th century as the Spanish espada ropera, or "dress sword". It was a fast and light single handed sword designed for cutting and thrusting. In 1570 the Italian swordmaster Signior Rocco Bonetti settled in England and advocated the use of the rapier for thrusting as opposed to cutting when engaged in a duel. Although it was generally seen as a civilian weapon, more robust versions such as the Pappenheimer Rapier were developed for battlefield use and saw service in conflicts such as the English Civil War. Many rapier treatises still survive including "The Schoole of the Noble and Worthy Science of Defence" written in England in 1617 by Joseph Swetnam.

    Our Renaissance Rapier features a hand forged complex hilt constructed from steel and polished to a bright finish. The wire-bound handle is both attractive and functional - allowing for a firmer grip than the leather bound equivalent. The hand forged steel blade is housed in a well made wooden scabbard with leather covering and steel fittings. This sword is blunt and designed for display only.

  • Practical Rapier - 37" Blade

    The Schlaeger Rapiers by Paul Chen utilize 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.

    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. 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.
