Description Item Specs
The Rapier was considered the Civilians sword and the Gentleman's Sword. The sword was made primarily as a thrusting weapon and therefore not effective on a battle field. The Rapier began its development during the 16th century in both Spain and Germany.

In Spain the single handed sword was known as the "Espada Ropera" and in Germany it was the Pappenheimer. Although, it may seem like the Rapier was an innovation that sprang up overnight it was in fact a long process with many trials and error and as many factors leading to its creation and widespread use.

This is a Reproduction of a 16th century Rapier. The sword has a perfect balance and an authentic-looking wire wrapped pommel. The sword is perfect for collectors, enthusiasts and for stage use.
  • lade: The blade of the sword is 440 Stainless Steel in a mirror polished finish. The edge of the sword is dulled but the point is very sharp. A ridge runs down the length of the blade with a short Ricasso at the base of the sword.
  • Scabbard: The scabbard of the sword is wooden with dull black finish. The drag and scabbard throat are both polished steel.
  • Guard: The guard of the sword is intricately built in a swept hilt design with a double concentric ring guard and a square fore-guard. The Quillons are a straight cross bar design with the knuckle bow attached just below it. The knuckle bow is attached with two additional guards and ends with a ball tip.
  • Handle: The handle is wrapped in steel wire with a polished stainless steel pommel.
