Immerse yourself in history with our exquisitely crafted Rapier sword—a testament to elegance and precision. Defined by its slender and sharply pointed design, the Rapier isn't just a weapon, but an emblem of prestige and skill.
- Purposeful Design: Primarily a thrusting instrument, our rapier boasts versatility with its ability to cut and slash. Unlike some counterparts, our blade is sharpened along its entire length, ensuring maximum effectiveness.
- Hand Protection: One of the rapier's defining characteristics is its intricate hilt—meticulously designed to safeguard the wielder's hand.
- Historical Roots: Emerging in 15th century Spain, the rapier rose to prominence in 16th and 17th century Europe. This single-handed sword, reminiscent of the Roman gladius, facilitated the use of a secondary weapon, be it a dagger or pistol, in the off-hand.
- Cultural Impact: Beyond its battlefield importance, the rapier became a symbol of fashion among Europe's elite. However, its ubiquity and use in duels wasn't without critics like George Silver, who publicly voiced concerns over its potential misuse.
- Modern Evolution: Today, the rapier's spirit lives on in the fencing foil, a sport practiced worldwide. Our 47-inch design mirrors the modern fencing rapier established in 1885, capturing both its historical essence and contemporary charm.

This sword was a gift for my partner for our anniversary and he absolutely loved it. Sword seems to be well made and has a beautiful hilt. Very big in person. The option to have it engraved made it all the better, partner lived the engraving.
I'm too short for this sword (5'4"). Luckily I was able to get help to exchange this sword for another. It is just so pretty, I wish I wasn't so short.
