TAZA RAPIER (SH2035) by CAS Hanwei
Long extolled as the pinnacle of rapier design, the “Spanish” or “Cup-Hilt” rapier undoubtedly combined style and function very effectively in 17th century Europe. The very best of these weapons featured beautifully pierced cups and pommels and CAS Hanwei has replicated these to perfection and combined them with an elegantly tapered 38 1/4 inch high-carbon steel blade in our “Taza” rapier (the name comes from the French, who called this style “a la Taza”).
This Rapier measures 46 1/4 inches overall and finds its point of balance 5 inches from the guard. A leather-covered scabbard is included.
The Taza Rapier features a blade of high quality, strength, and
temper, and is fully functional. See model SH2137 for the perfect complement Taza Main Gauche for this version of this sword.
