Northern European soldiers through much of the 16th Century used a functional military sword of this style. This example with a blackened hilt enhanced by bronze crowns and vertical bars is a bit classier than average. The hilt arm and back sweep added to the cross guard, one of the earliest developments of the rapier hilt, protect the first finger when placed over the guard. This style grip was used to increase point control for the thrust when fighting.
Our rapier hilts are hand crafted to order. With the demand for our pieces delivery times usually run in the 8 to 12 month range.
