This elegant Italian rapier by Arms & Armor has a sharpened blade of tempered 6150 high carbon steel. The elaborately twisted guard and pommel are of steel and the complex grip is overlaid in braided steel wire; the grip is also surmounted by knotted turks heads of twisted steel wire.

Arms & Armor based this rapier on an original 1625 Northern Italian example housed within the Wallace Collection of London. A photograph of the original can be seen at the online gallery of the Wallace Collection; this rapier is tagged A602 in the collection.

A rapier of this type would likely have been a dashing accoutrement at the hip of a well-heeled citizen or duelist in Milan or Genoa. Not merely a fetching accessory, it has the responsiveness and reach expected of a well-crafted rapier.The elaborate guard gives ample protection to the hand when used in the finger over the guard technique for enhanced tip control.
