Description of the Product

Because the rapier was almost useless as a military weapon, the variant known as a sword rapier was developed. With the preferred method of parry to the outside, (as opposed to the inside, where a failure to parry successfully would almost always have life-threatening consequences) guards were made to cover the hand only on that side. This also allowed the sword to lie closer to the body, making it easier to carry and draw. We named this sword the Rheinfelden, after the battle in 1638. Rheinfelden was besieged by the German Protestant forces, but the Imperialist Bavarian forces attacked as the Germans were crossing a river and caught them by surprise. The Duke of Saxe-Weimar however, was able to disengage and march down river, cross back over, and attack the Imperialist army from the rear and route them. This type of sword was carried by many of the men on either side. The blade of this functional sword is high carbon steel. Includes scabbard.

Paikkakunnalla ollessani ja keskiajasta kiinnostuneena täällä oli pakko käydä. Aivan upea ja todella monipuolinen kauppa! Ystävällinen ja mukava myyjä neitonen esitteli minulle Etelä -Tirolilaisen mallin mukaan taidokkaasti valmistettua kypärää, josta tein myös kaupat. Liikkeen omistaja ei myöskään säästänyt vaivojaan esitellessään minulle haarniskavarustuksen eri osia. Erittäin asiakaslähtöistä palvelua! On todella hienoa, että tällaisia erikoisliikkeitä maastamme vielä löytyy, tämäkin kuulemma ainoa laatuaan. On varmaa, että vierailen tässä liikkeessä toistekkin! Täältä löytää uskomattoman paljon myös koriste-esineiksi ja lahjoiksi sopivia tavaroita, joten suosittelen tätä kaikille sellaisiakin etsiville.
