In the Renaissance the sword became more and more a second weapon beside the gun or the pistol. The blades became slimmer, a hilt became more usual than a cross-guard and the point was sharper for good stabbing.

The ricasso, an unpolished part of the blade, became more popular and was often used. One of the most well-known Renaissance swords was the rapier, which was mainly used as a duel and fashion sword. This slim sword already originated in 1470 and changed in a fast stabbing weapon without cutting edges.

This rapier protects the hand because of the steel hilt. Its length is 112 cm, it has a blade of 96 cm and its width is 3 cm. It weighs 1250 g.

This item is semi-sharp and designed for decorative purposes. It can be made razor sharp at a surcharge.

This item is produced in limited quantities only. This means that every piece is unique. Sizes & finish may vary lightly from piece to piece.
