Rapiers like this Officers 1840 model were used by the ranks of the US army for more than 70 years. And they actually saw a good deal of fighting, because during this time America fought the Mexican-American War (1846 - 1848), the Civil War (1861 - 1864) and the Spanish-American War (1898). The big advantage of this elegant Officers 1840 model: it is lightweight. This makes the single-edged, slender blade gratifyingly nimble. The wide fuller that almost runs from the ricasso to the point of the rapier adds to its lightness. The golden grip with the riveted pommel is paired with a simple knuckle bow and a kidney-shaped cup for hand protection to result in an elegant weapon.


This rapier comes with a Forged High-Carbon Steel Blade with a Steel, Gold finish Hilt and a steel scabbard fitted with two rings for fastening it to a belt.
