What are Functional Rapier?

Our functional rapier swords are made to withstand the punishment of modern day re-enactors and historical fencers.

These rapier are hand forged by master craftsmen and accomplished blade smiths. Each piece has a high carbon steel blade which is properly heat treated so that it can absorb the energy of impact, just as the originals. These swords modelled after the famous renaissance rapier are perfect additions to any collection or practitioner arsenal of historical weaponry.
