This German sword has a basket-shaped knot, pieces of steel and textured leather on the grip wood. The blade is hardened steel with a high carbon content. The sheath has a throat and tip decorative. We find this extraordinary rapiera in an old catalog of antique weapons, where he qualified as Rapiera German, and we felt that we had to reproduce it. The hilt shows design aspects of some of the swords larger, but the basket-shaped knot is very unusual and had not seen anything like this. The sword is light, fast and very well balanced.
|Blade long||91 cms.|
|Width at Guard||2.5 cms.|
