This type of rapier was often chosen as a distinct sword design by elite military groups of the 17th century. Many examples survive from Saxon and Bavarian corps. The epitome of a classic rapier, it could not be bettered as an example of the sword makers' art. Arms & Armor produces this rapier with an authentic twisted wire-wrapped grip using fine wire and a tight twist not often seen in modern reproductions. The inner guard has a three bar set of the normal type. This rapier's place in history is made to coincide with our Saxon Parrying Dagger #070.
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.
Please indicate your preference for a standard satin steel finish or special blued hilt when ordering.
