The Bilbo was a later Spanish development that in this case has an asymmetrical plate that works to guard the hand from both thrust and cut. This style guard was usually mounted with a military blade, though guards of similar styles were used with rapier blades. Our bilbo features no piercework on either plate. It is mounted with a WMA Destreza type blade, a plastic handle that will not crack or split, and a round pommel. The larger plate add a couple ounces to the weight of the standard destreza trainer, but that is the price for hand protection.
