Fencing Rapier - Musketeer Blade - SH1032
Fencing Rapier - Musketeer Blade
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 developed a number of other weapons for the Renaissance fencer and these are presented here.
The Schlaeger Rapiers utilize 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.
The Fencing Rapier, a standard in the sport, is available with either the Schlaeger blade (SH1032B) or double-wide Epee (Musketeer) blade (SH1032). Either blade will fit the OL301 sheath. The Main Gauche (SH1033) is fitted with a training blade that combines adequate parrying stiffness at the forte with tip flexibility for safety, making the piece ideal for two-weapon sparring. The AH2143 mask meets international punch-test standards and is recommended for use with these and any other fencing weapons. Replacement blade available: OHLASP02.
