A nicely balanced, light and fast swept-hilt rapier by Paul Chen / Hanwei. This is an excellent rapier - if you've been disappointed in the past by clunky, ill-balanced "rapier like objects" sold by undiscriminating sword merchants as "genuine battle ready renaissance rapiers!", this is the rapier for you. It will make you appreciate the speed and efficiency of what rapiers were/were meant to be. Really sweet, excellent handling. Also available is a separate blunt/rebated rapier blade that fits in this hilt and gives you a full sharp-or-blunt training weapons system, and a matching bone hilt main gauche.
