Italian Rapier, 16th Century
This is a very beautiful replica of an Italian rapier with curved hilt
from the 16th Century.
With the end of the Middle Ages the blades became longer and smaller
because the combat techniques changed. The common sword has now been replaced
by the more elegant rapier.
During the Renaissance the wearing of a rapier has also been a gentleman’s
status symbol. Higher nobles like counts or barons wore longer blades,
lower noblemen shorter blades.
The hilt is made of animal bones.
Material: Blade and guard from carbon steel, hilt from bones
Total length: approx. 111 cm
