      Blade is fine, quillons are rubbish. I bought this a while back, for training purposes. Handles nicely, and I have no reason to doubt the blade quality, but the first time i tried to do any sparring, I looked at it after the bout and saw both quillons bent to about 30 degrees. Its a shame; I wish Hanwei would spring for some better steel on the guard.

      7 years and going strong I’ve had a pair of these for years and they’re my favorite rapier. The Crossguards are cast steel and the only weak point and do bend when struck, but the cup is turned stainless steel and have held up to sparring for years; when the guard bends, bend it back. The only gripe I have with it is that from the factory the internal finger rings rest on the velvet interior and once it compresses further tightening of the pommel will bend the crossguard. I remedied that with a strip of leather under the cup guard.

      The Blade is by far the best of the hanwei rapier designs. Stiff and responsive with great blade presence.
