Sergeant Rapier 1840

Rapiers like this sergeant rapier 1840 model were used by the ranks of the US army for more than 70 years. And they actually saw a good deal of fighting, because during this time America fought the Mexican-American War (1846 - 1848), the Civil War (1861 - 1864) and the Spanish-American War (1898). The big advantage of this elegant sergeant rapier 1840 model: it is lightweight. This makes the single-edged, slender blade gratifyingly nimble. The wide fuller that almost runs from the ricasso to the point of the rapier adds to its lightness. The golden grip with the riveted pommel is paired with a simple knuckle bow and a kidney-shaped cup for hand protection to result in an elegant weapon. More information...
