PRODUCT DETAILS

The rapier, recognized for its narrow and slender blade was once a civilian weapon during the 16th and 17th centuries. Due to its long history, they vary in design. One of the most well known is the swept hilt rapier, named after its sweeping and graceful curved hilt.

The rapier was often used with a Main Gauche (left hand dagger) for more options in offense and defense. This was seen in the many "Schools of Fence" in Europe at the time that taught the combined use of both weapons. In these instances, the main gauche and rapier often had match styles and even incorporated features that maximized the effectiveness of the combination.

Kingston Arms' Swept Hilt Rapier is designed based on Renaissance style rapiers in early 17th century Europe, a time where the rapier played a key role in a gentleman's education and upbringing. Although blades in those times mostly originated from Toledo or Solingen, the hilt still varied in style and material.

Based on these designs, Kingston Arms' rapier has a high carbon steel blade and features improvements such as the reenforced area where the guard joins the blade, allowing for stronger thrusts. Other enhancements include the matte finished stainless steel guard and pommel and a more comfortable and secure grip wrapped with brown cord with enough space for its wielder to wear fencing gloves. To minimize the size of packaging, this rapier comes unassembled but includes a metric wrench to help tighten the pommel and grip.
