This Swept-Hilt Rapier features classical lines, with a forged 1566 high-carbon steel flex-tempered live blade, a stainless steel hilt for ease maintenance and a hardwood grip. The hilt is of the same size as the museum piece on which it is based, providing an authentic “feel” in the user’s hand and weight and balance also match originals. The blade is interchangeable with the Hanwei  “Practical” blade (OH2255) which is designed for safety in rapier sparring. The matching Main Gauche (SH2117) may also be equipped with a sparring blade.

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.
