Not all rapiers were fine weapons, made for the social elite of the renaissance. They were a common sword of the day, and so some, like this Black Hilt Rapier, were made to be less ornate. Being less fancy does little to decrease this blades effectiveness. This rapier is straight-forward in its design, possessing a look suitable for any swordsman who prefers a thrusting style of sword. The blade is crafted from stainless steel, and its thin, needle-like shape makes it look perfect for deadly thrusts and defensive parries. The cast-metal guard features a cage around the swords ricasso, long quillons for defense, and a downward swept shell around the grip. The grip is black and swelled slightly so that it fits nicely into the hand. A round scent-stopper pommel finishes the blade. Included with the sword is a black scabbard for safely securing the blade when it is not in use or display. At your side, this Black Hilt Rapier makes for a great side-arm to complete your ideal renaissance or musketeer look, and on your wall, it will serve well as a fine display piece to remind others of a time when honor was won at the point of a sword.
