This stunning 17th century rapier has an expertly crafted swept & twisted metal basket. The heavily carved horn grip mimics the elegantly twisted metal of the hilt and is hand wound and inset with a single steel accent wire that provides an excellent grip while dueling. Better yet was the aristocratic, dashing look it gave the wearer while rakishly hanging from the belt. Hand forged, high carbon steel blade with flattened oval cross section. Extended, custom engraved ricasso for strength. Includes leather scabbard with twisted metal accents completing this magnificent and fast rapier. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.
