Decorative Fencing Rapiers

As the sword evolved, so too did its design. The wide, cutting swords of the middle ages gave rise to the piercing thrust of the rapier, and with the rapier, can ornate, flowing guards and stunning designs and details that made every a sword a distinctive personal decoration. At Dark Knight Armoury, we carry a number of decorative rapiers that echo this notion perfectly. Our line of decorative rapiers are designed to resemble the classic rapiers and cut-and-thrust swords from history, although many feature slightly embellished details that make them far more worthy of display. Some of our decorative rapiers are just classic rapier designs that have been created for all to enjoy, while others are modeled after actual swords that are used by noted figures through history, making them historically significant as well as stunning to look at. These rapiers are not just wall decorations, though. While they are not crafted to stand up to the rigors of combat or use, they are still beautiful swords that you can wear at your side any time you don your costume and desire a fantastic sword at your side, which means you can show off a bit of prestige by keeping a beautiful and ornate sword on your hip. Whether you get a simpler one to echo the style of the typical swordsman or a more ornate one that depicts the style of sword favored by noblemen and kings, you can bet that any one of these decorative rapiers are a fantastic collectible to include as a part of your decor, as well as a beautiful sword to carry at your side, one that will catch the eye and spark the interest of all who see it.
