This swept hilt rapier handmade by Windlass Steelcrafts was quite popular in the late 16th and early 17th centuries. The blade is 1055 high carbon steel with a diamond cross section. The blade is mounted into a swept hilt of steel – or the intertwining bars that protect the bearer’s hand, and completed with a grip of polished bone. The rapier is paired with a thick leather scabbard with steel fittings.
Bone is a natural product and may have slight variations from the photo
This was one of Windlass’s most popular rapiers for a number of years, later to be retired, but now back in production as a Windlass Classics.
