A duelist needs a sword that excels at both offense and defense. This Blackened Swept Hilt Rapier, with its cut-and-thrust style blade, looks to be just that, while its blackened hilt confers a dark sort of appeal to the look of this fencing blade. Many a dispute was settled over the point of a rapier, and this weapon offers up the classic style of sword that would have been used during the 16th century. This rapier possesses a hand crafted carbon steel blade of the cut-and-thrust style, making it a bit thicker than the classic rapier, but no less swift and deadly on the thrust, either. The blade features a short ricasso, encompassed by the swept hilt, as well as a blade with a diamond cross-section, for a bit of stiffness and rigidity in the swords length. The hilt is blackened cast-steel, with a sweeping design of twisted quillons that is not only elegant in shape, but also effective for defense, too, serving to keep the hand safe from blades that might slip, slide, or skewer towards the hand. The grip is capped with a cylindrical pommel, which completes the swords overall hilt design. Included with the sword is a wooden scabbard, wrapped in leather and fitted with matching black metal furnishings at the throat and chape. A dark duelist would surely appreciate the appeal of this Blackened Swept Hilt Rapier, just as any renaissance sword master would want to handle a sword as versatile and as iconic as this blade.
