Based on models of 17 th century swept-hilt rapiers of Italian ancestry and combining the better features of several pieces, our Torino Rapier (SH2204) with matching main gauche (SH2207) is sure to become the standard by which all others are measured.
The blades are made of forged high-carbon steel. The guard has an ornate design with straight quillons to protect the hand and for wrapping the fingers around to increase functionality and one’s grip strength.
Also available are antiqued versions of the Torino Rapier (SH2204N) with matching main gauche.

Includes a leather scabbardThis model comes with sharp blade but you can use it for historical fencing, if you change the blade by a compatible OH2255 (blunt blade) made by the same manufacturer.
The steel is untreated and may have rust. To protect the steel you may rub it with mineral or synthetic oil.
The scabbard is designed for shipping not for storing so we suggest you not to keep the blade in the scabbard for long periods of time because metal can be rusted.
No returns will be accepted due to these issues.
This is an historic reproduction item. It has been designed following its physical appearance and materials but not in any case to fulfill all the same functions than the original piece.
