Spanish Swept-Hilt Rapier with Scabbard

This reconstruction of a classically styled Spanish swept-hilt rapier of the Renaissance has a narrow, double-edged EN45 spring steel blade with diamond cross-section and pointed tip. The edges are not sharpened, and the blade’s full tang is threaded to the pommel. The complex, elegant swept hilt with S-shaped crossguard, bars and side rings is made of stainless steel, as is the pommel. The grip is composed of a wooden core wrapped with twisted steel wire.

Spanish Swept-Hilt Rapier with Scabbard

The rapier first appeared around 1500 and remained the sword of choice of the European gentry and bourgeoisie until the late 17th century. Primarily designed as a thrusting weapon (yet still quite efficient at cutting and slashing), this one-handed, usually double-edged Renaissance sword with long, slender blade and sharp point was predominantly used by noblemen for both military and civilian purposes. Generally equipped with a more or less elaborate basket-, cup- or swept-hilt for enhanced hand protection on the battlefield or duelling ground, it enjoyed great popularity in the most varied forms throughout Europe as a fencing, self-defence, or duelling weapon and eventually became a status symbol and an essential fashion accessory to any gentleman’s or officer’s attire.

Delivery includes a black stitched leather scabbard finished with a steel throat and chape.

Please note that this sword is not a battle-ready weapon. It is designed as a collector’s or decoration/display piece and is not suited for combat reenactment. Besides its quality as a collectible, it is also perfectly suited as a prop, e.g. to complete your costume.
