Ribbed Shell Swept Hilt Rapier

According to historians, the Rapier first appeared on the sword scene in the late 14th century and held sway in most of Europe until the late 16th century except in Spain where it endured clear into the 18th century. The reason for its long reign as the civilian weapon of choice for self-defense and dueling can be tied to its two major advantages: First its long, slim, double edged blade was ideal for delivering the point at great distances. And secondly, its elaborate hilt (evolving from rings, bars and quillons to shells and chiseled cups) offered excellent protection and caught or deflected blows with ease.
Sadly, while never proven ineffective or obsolete, the rapier eventually succumbed to the dictates of fashion and gave way to smaller swords.

Happily, Cold Steel® has chosen to revive this historical classic with an own modern interpretation designed by Dave Baker. The long, narrow blade is fully sharpened and beautifully polished with a single wide fuller at the forte to assure perfect balance. The hilt also reflects the best in craftsmanship and materials, fashioned from stainless steel featuring a classic ribbed shell and multiple bars, quillons and a knuckle bow for unparalleled hand protection. The grip itself is made of wood covered with rich black rayskin and decorative wire. It terminates in a heavy ribbed pommel that serves as a perfect counter balance to the rapier's long blade.
