Product description

Deschaux Rapier circa 1590

With its graceful, artistic lines, the rapier has always been a romantic symbol of the Renaissance. The reality is that the rapier is a very deadly hand-to-hand combat weapon, perfectly suited for the swift moves of the duellists of the day. Many hilt forms were tried early on like this three ringed swept hilt. The grip is bone, with a wire wrapping, making for a very secure grip. This is a light, fast and deadly sword with a classical design. 

  • Overall length approx. 1162 mm
  • Blade length (up to basket/hilt) approx. 941 mm
  • Length of the crossguard approx. 252 mm
  • The hilt is approx. 190 mm long and approx. 135 mm deep
  • The pommel is approx. 57 mm long and 32,3 mm in diameter
  • The diameter of the handle is approx. 27,5 mm
  • Blade width at the hilt approx. 19,3 mm
  • Blade thickness at the hilt approx. 4,5 mm
  • Blade width 100 mm from the point approx. 11,8 mm
  • Blade thickness 100 mm from the point approx. 3,85 mm
  • Distance between the crossguard and the pommel (handle length) is approx. 93 mm
  • POB approx. 100 mm
  • Blade made of High Carbon Steel 1065
  • Steel hardness 48-52 HRC
  • The blade is not sharpened but is blunt neither, the striking edge thickness is about 1,0 mm
  • Weight of the sword without scabbard approx. 1196 g
  • Weight of the scabbard approx. 148 g
  • Even if this is a fully functional sword, it cannot be used in combat shows, historical reenactment or similar for safety reasons!

Specs can vary slightly from rapier to rapier.

This rapier is likewise suitable for beginners and advanced fighters. With high-quality carbon steel blades which hardly show any scratches when used against other blades. The pommels are riveted at the end of the tang.

    Bin sehr enttäuscht von diesem Rapier. Auf den ersten Blick sehr schön aber einfach miserabel verarbeitet. Das Griffstück ist frei drehbar weil es nicht richtig befestigt wurde. Die Parierelemente wackeln aus demselben Grund. Die Klinge ist dermaßen flexibel/wacklig das ich der Meinung bin, das dieses Schwert für akurate Teststiche unbrauchbar ist weil die Klinge sich zu sehr verbiegt und dadurch zuviel Kraft des Stichs verloren geht. Natürlich sollte man bei diesem Preis nicht zuviel erwarten aber diesen Rapier als voll funktionsfähig zu beschreiben finde ich nicht richtig.
