German Pilsen Rapier - Windlass Steelcrafts

Product Description

The riding sword is thought to be the ancestor of the rapier. It was designed for civilian use in mind to be a quick and effective sword for defense. As time moved closer to the Renaissance we see this type of sword becoming thinner and lighter with the hilt becoming very ornate in some cases.

Civilian Sword

The German Pilsen Rapier is a reproduction from a historical piece found in an old weapons catalogue. The hilt design was heavily influenced from the riding sword with a rare hercules knot design not generally seen in rapier baskets. The hilt is constructed in steel with a metal wire accent wrapping the pommel. The handle also features a grey leather over wood core. The blade is hand forged from a 1065 high carbon steel and properly tempered. This piece is very light and quick along with a superb balance.
