During the English Civil war period both mortuary swords with half basket type hilts and a variety of rapier styles were standard swords to be encountered on the battlefield. Many rapiers were to be found with heavier blades so that the sword was better suited to the rigours of warfare.
Price QualityTBeen swinging from chandeliers with this one I even bought a huge musketeer hat to go with it.
Sword is well balanced and sturdy.
Great service btw I ordered a 9 inch buckler with it and they sent me an email saying it was out of stock but upgraded me to a 12 inch no extra cost.
Price QualityDrama Student's DadOrdered for my drama student son. Too big in practice. Good response to telephone message, and we're sorting out the return / exchange.
Price QualityMattA decent sword and perfect for what it is intended to be. Very well constructed and sturdy and the point of balance is good, roughly 15cm as most authentic rapiers. The finish on the hilt is only every so slightly scratched and rough, but not a problem for those only intending to use it for dueling or stage combat purposes, but those who wish it for a display piece may be put off by this factor, but despite this it is still an attractive piece. Overall a very decent product.
