Details

Fencing in the Renaissance style plays a prominent part in historical re-enactment, combining the quickness of light blades with the structure and spirit of the duel. In addition to our Practical Swept Hilt and Cup-Hilt Rapiers we have a number of other weapons for the Renaissance fencer and these are presented here.
The Schlaeger Rapiers utilise a popular swept hilt, modified to accommodate our schlaeger blades in 37" (SH1099) and 43" (SH1098) lengths. These tapered blades provide a superior balance compared to the traditional parallel-sided schlaegers, making for a faster sword.

    First class service, Excellent first rapier
    Review by Al Gill
    First class service from Southern Swords. Ordered just before the weekend and it arrived on Monday morning very well packaged. Also liked the fact that when I placed the order the person who answered the phone actually knew what they were talking about - I didn't have to explain the different blade choices / difference between cup / swept hilt.

    I'm basically an epeeist just taking my first steps in rapier so my (non-expert) comments are as follows:-
    * Build quality of the hilt seems to be very solid.
    * Grip and pommel nicely put together - feels as reliable as my PBT French grip epee
    * Pleasantly surprised to find the point of balance only a couple of inches outside the hilt even with the 43" blade
    Only other comment is that it would have been nice to get a rubber blunt along with the weapon.

    Would definitely recommend these guys as a source of rapiers.
