The English Rapier, with its delicate loop bars and pierced front lobes, was a common sight in Jacobean England. First developing into its own style about 1635, the English rapier (sometimes called the English cup hilt) is found in a fair variety of forms and often with astounding chisel and file work and beautiful ornamentation of all kinds. For our version we have chosen a somewhat utilitarian one based on an example that sold at auction. There is engraving to highlight the pattern on the hilt, but the handle and pommel options are our standard offerings.
Shown here in black (+$25), it is also available in the bright finish at no extra charge.
