Enter the world of 16th and 17th century European combat with our meticulously crafted Rapier Sword. This slender, sharply pointed masterpiece is inspired by the swords once favored by the nobility and military officers of Early Modern Europe.
Unlike typical rapiers, which are only sharpened at the tip, our Rapier Sword boasts sharpness along the entire length of the blade, providing versatility in both thrusting and cutting or slashing actions. Its complex hilt design ensures excellent hand protection, a key characteristic of these elegant weapons.
Our Rapier Sword borrows strategic inspiration from the Roman gladius. Much like these ancient swords, our rapier is designed for one-handed use, leaving your other hand free for a secondary weapon or shield.
Constructed from Pattern Welded Damascus steel, our Rapier Sword offers an optimal balance of hardness and durability, with a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC. The 11 pieces of steel, folded five times to create 352 layers, results in a blade with extraordinary resilience and a keen edge that can withstand powerful collisions. We've chosen to use 1095 steel - the highest carbon-content steel - for superior strength and flexibility.
The sword's handle is crafted from silver casting, contrasting beautifully against the rich brass bolsters. A high-quality leather sheath accompanies the sword, providing protection and easy transport.
- Handle Material: Silver Casting
- Overall Length: 36"

Unleash your inner duelist with our Rapier Sword - a perfect blend of historical authenticity, craftsmanship, and timeless elegance.
Though I haven't fully tested it, the quality of the steel seems very exceptional. The casting of the handle and guard are pretty much as expected, only a little bit loose. The fine touch up details on the blade were uncompleted which is not surprising for the price point of displayed. It's almost exactly what was expected for this price. Had the tiny details also been taken care of, it would have absolutely earned a five-star review. I am very happy with my purchase. Additionally, if they had offered black leather instead of just brown for the sheath, it might have also been up to earn a five star review.
I love the quality and the heftiness of this blade. I hope it could be good for a fencing competition.
My rapier is strong, sturdy, flexible, and light. The guard is ornate and gorgeous. I’m very happy with this purchase! Can’t wait for my longsword to come in
