GUSTAV MAIN GAUCHE (SH2209) by CAS Hanwei
Matching our Gustav Rapier (SH2206), the Gustav Main Gauche provides an authentically-styled parrying weapon, with a high-carbon steel blade and a stainless steel hilt (for reduced maintenance). 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 Gustav Main Gauche features a blade of high quality, strength, and
temper, and is fully functional. See model SH2206 Gustav Rapier for the perfect complement to this version of Main Gauche.
