Practical Cup Hilt Rapier

Fencing in the Renaissance style plays a prominent part in historical Reenactment, combining the quickness of light blades with the structure and spirit of the duel.

The rapier blade is similar in design to the practical blades for the swept-hilts but the length of the tang is adapted to the cup-hilt.

Made by Hanwei.
