This "antiqued" version of the Solingen Swept-Hilt Rapier (SH2205N) 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.

This Swept-Hilt Rapier features classical lines, with a high-carbon steel flex-tempered blade, a stainless steel hilt with "blade catcher" quillons and a twisted-wire grip. The hilt is of the same size as the 17th Century German piece on which it is based, providing an authentic “feel” in the user’s hand and weight and balance also match originals. The blade is interchangeable with our “Practical” blade(OH2255) which is designed for safety in rapier sparring. The matching Antiqued Main Gauche (SH2208N) may also be equipped with a sparring blade.

Our Renaissance-style Rapiers trace their origins to early 17th century Europe, where swordplay with the Rapier was considered an essential part of a gentleman’s education and was often used in resolving gentlemanly disagreements. Blades generally originated in one of the blade making centers such as Toledo or Solingen, but many differences in styling and hilt materials resulted from the local manufacture of hilts all over Europe.
