A beautiful rapier by Windlass Steelcrafts based on a German original. This type of rapier is very rare and it is almost unbelievable that it is truly a replica of a historical rapier from a catalog of antique weapons. This rapier has a basket with beautifully designed knot motifs. The grip is made of wood covered with leather and feels comfortable in the hand. This sword is delivered including a black scabbard with etchings in the 16th century Renaissance style. The semi-sharp blade is forged from tempered 1065 carbon steel with a hardness of 48-52 HRC. A great decorative sword for on the wall, also beautiful for a reenactment costume or for a Three Musketeers Cosplay. Because of the unusual design you can also wear it with your fantasy costume. When you blunten the blade, it's a great battle ready sword for sword fighting and a fine training sword for Historical European Martial Arts.

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

Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your weapons regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper. Remove burrs with a whetstone. Make sure you have removed all burrs before using a battle-ready weapon, as they can cause wounds.

Maintenance & care
Just as with weaponry, you can care for your shoes and leatherware by applying a little Ballistol after cleaning. This prevents the leather from drying out.

Sharpening service

This item is semi-sharp and designed for decorative purposes. It can be made razor sharp at a surcharge. When using the sharpening service, the return right and warranty expires. The extra delivery time is approx. 2 weeks.

Blunting service

The blade of this sword can be blunted (2,5-3 mm) at a surcharge. Please note: although the thickness will be the same as a battle-ready sword, the return right and warranty expires when using the blunting service. Please contact us if you wish to use the blunting service, or make a note at the last step of your shiopping cart. The extra delivery time is approx. 2 weeks.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.

Please note. After finishing the product yourself, the warranty and return right expire. Celtic WebMerchant is not responsible for the obtained result."
