Italian Rapier Leonello with swept hilt, 16th cen.

Very nice replica of an Italian rapier hilt with curved from the 16th cen. By changing the fighting technique, the blades were longer and narrower with the output of the mid-Laters. Thus, the conventional sword was replaced by the more elegant rapier. In the Renaissance period the wearing of rapiers was also a symbol of social status for noble men. Higher nobles, such as counts and barons wore longer blade, lower nobles had to make do with shorter arms.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blade?

In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
