After hundreds of requests, Battlecry has added a classic rapier to their popular line of blackened, uniquely finished versions of history's great swords. This rapier features a very complex Spanish style hilt and faceted pommel. The grip is hand-wound with blackened wire with woven wire rings top and bottom. The hand-forged, high carbon steel, fully tempered blade features a diamond cross-section to strengthen it for thrusting. Top-quality, genuine leather scabbard with deeply engraved floral pattern on the throat and tip. This type of sword was deadly effective as a dueling weapon.
The 1065 high carbon steel has darkened, battle-hardened finish, so it’s well protected from the frequent rust spots and stains that occur so often from everyday practice and exposure to the elements. The blade has an extra-wide tang and is tempering to a low 50s RC. The blade is thick for strength and peened to the pommel. This pre-sharpened blade has gone through rigorous testing. The hands-on nature of the manufacturing by master smiths makes this line unique.
Includes a certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process. Also includes "Battlecry" sticker.
