Rapier Gustav II

King Gustav II Adolf (1594-1632) was monarch of Sweden from 1611 to 1632. In 1630, as a defensive manoeuvre, he entered the Thirty Years' War to secure the Swedish state and church from danger. An excellent military tactician, Gustav led an army of unusual quality, and his position was strengthened by alliances with France, Brandenburg and Saxony. At Lützen in 1632, the Swedes defeated Albrecht W.E. von Wallenstein's army, but King Gustav was fatally wounded in battle.

Rapier Gustav II by Paul Chen

The Hanwei Gustav Rapier replicates the weapon wielded by this great King. The shell guard of this rapier is unusual but effective. The rapier features classical lines, with a high carbon steel flex-tempered blade, a stainless steel hilt (for reduced maintenance) with blade catcher-quillons and a twisted-wire grip. The hilt is of the same size as the original, providing an authentic feel in the user's hand, and the weight and balance also match the original piece.

The blade is interchangeable with the Hanwei Practical blade (Product No. OH2255) which is designed for safety in rapier sparring. A matching Main Gauche (Product No. SH2209) is available as well and may also be equipped with a sparring blade.

Made by Hanwei.
