This training rapier by Arms & Armor is strongly influenced by a rapier seen in Joachim Meyer’s 1570 treatise: ‘’A Thorough Description of the Art of Combat’’. Not merely a teacher of rapier swordplay, Meyer was also a cutler and thus we can infer that his highly detailed illustrations have a notable degree of veracity in their depiction of the swords of his time.

From his illustrations Arms & Armor have created this blunt-bladed training rapier intended for rigorous training or stage combat; it has a blade with 6150 tempered high carbon steel that is universally blunted at the edges and rectangular in cross-section. The tip is quite rounded-off for safety. The hilt with long quillons, large side ring and knuckle bow is of steel and the grip is bound and finished in braided wire which was carefully set.
