This is a Reproduction of a 17th century Rapier. The sword has a perfect balance and, though not authentic, the wire wrapped leather handle makes the sword very comfortable to use and gives it a better grip. The sword is perfect for collectors, enthusiasts and stage use. The blade of the sword is 440 Stainless Steel in a mirror polished finish. The edge of the sword is dulled but the point is very sharp. A ridge runs down the length of the blade with a short ricasso at the base of the sword.
Blade notes: The blade is not sharpened but it does have a sharp point.
