Perhaps the single most beautiful and elegant one-handed sword ever created, the Rapier is an astonishingly gorgeous weapon. Lightweight, sleek and deadly, this sword allows the wielder to both attack and defend as fast as humanly possible. It is a joy to use and a delight to behold!
The hand guard is a flat section of material, topped by a lightweight decorative basket hilt. This makes the weapon far more lightweight and maneuverable while still offering a reasonable amount of protection.
This new rapier uses the new handle to Calimacil’s arsenal introduced by the Treville. The steel colored handle is beautifully shaped and provides for a decent amopunt of protection. The guard is, like the rest of the weapon, made from our safe Calimacil foam, so it will bend but not break, providing superb durability. The whole sword is incredibly realistic, making it perfect for historic re-enactments and LARPing alike.
