Elected King of Sweden on June 6th 1523, Gustav Vasa (1494-1560) had led the Swedish people to independence from the Danish King. This elegant replica depicts the personal weapon of King Vasa. It is an excellent example of the side sword style of rapier designed for cut and thrust fencing. Our all-steel replica is blued and accented with bright steel lion and medusa heads on the guard. This striking combination is fitted with a black and silver wire grip. A matching parrying dagger is also available.

The original sword of the king resides in the Royal Armoury in Stockholm. It was nearly lost in a fire, but a quick thinking person tossed it out the window and while sustaining some damage was saved from the fire.

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.
