Classical Rapier

Description of the Product

Exceptional not only for its exquisite beauty, but also for its lightning-quick speed. This rapier, reproduced from an original in the collection of Hank Reinhardt, 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 in 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. Can be seen in a documentary Deadly Duels. Blade made of high quality high carbon steel. Scabbard included.

Weight 990g (2 lbs 3oz), overall 112cm
(44 ¼”), blade 92cm
(36 ¼”) long, 1.9cm
(3/4”) wide, 4.8cm
(3/16”) thick. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

Absolutely worth visiting. Things to wonder and admire for hours and to buy... Don't tell your spouse unless he/she is also an enthusiast :)
