The transition from sword to rapier was not abrupt, and therefore numerous hybrid forms were widespread. The blade of our Italian military rapier was designed for thrusting, but it is also wide enough to deliver cuts. In an epoch when firearms were already being used but reloading took a lot of time, a military rapier like this one was very useful on the battlefield. The two arms of the hilt and the S-shaped crossguard are forerunners of later baskets, and are made from the same steel as the blade and the riveted pommel. The one handed, wooden grip is wrapped with black leather for increased control and comfort.

 

Our Italian military rapier comes with a black leather scabbard featuring a mount and chape.
