ANTIQUED TORINO MAIN GAUCHE (SH2207N) by CAS Hanwei
This "antiqued" version of the Torino Main Gauche (SH2207) features a hilt finish, developed by Hanwei, that allows a museum-quality patina to be applied to stainless steel while the non-corroding properties of the steel are retained. This finish is very attractive and gives an authentic appearance to the piece. The blade is interchangeable with our “Practical” blade (OH2256) which is designed for safety in rapier/main gauche sparring.
The Main Gauche, or left hand dagger, was often used with the rapier, providing an added dimension in both offense and defense, and the “Schools of Fence” which proliferated in Europe during this period taught the use of the two weapons in combination. The Main Gauche would often match the Rapier in styling, while incorporating features which maximized the effectiveness of the piece. Replacement blades, both live and blunt (for sparring), are available for most of the Rapiers and Main Gauches.
The Antiqued Torino Main Gauche features a blade of high quality, strength, and
temper, and is fully functional. See model SH2204N Antiqued Torino Rapier for the perfect complement to this version of Main Gauche.
