European Rapier

Price: 1213 HKD / 169.82 USD (with flexible tip)

Sold: 18

 

16th and 17th century was the renaissance period for Europe. The city was built with narrow pathways in order to prevent invaders to travel in pack. A new civilian weapon, rapier,  was evolved to cope with the environment, which was a single handed thrusting sword with a longer reach than most of the cut and thrust swords. Sometimes the edge of rapier was not as sharp as the cut and thrust sword and its attacks mostly concentrate around the penetrating tip. The balance of the sword was set to optimize thrusting ability. The complex hilt was not only protective against cuts but could also set aside thrusts. Rapier was very popular in Europe and was the far ancestor of modern fencing.

 

Realistic Sparring Weapon's Rapier was modeled after a historical example that featured a long blade. The complex hilt's functionality was simulated. The sparring sword's blade was also adjusted to reduce the weight of the blade and to imitate the thinner profile of the real sword, thus it was not suitable for chopping motion.
