Schlager Blade

The Schlager Rapiers utilize a popular swept hilt, modified to accommodate Hanwei's schlager blades in 37" and 43" lengths. These tapered blades provide a superior balance compared to the traditional parallel-sided schlagers, making for a faster sword. Paul Chen's Renaissance style Rapiers trace their origins to early 17th century Europe, where swordplay with the Rapier was considered an essential part of a gentleman's education and was often used in resolving gentlemanly disagreements. Blades generally originated in one of the blade making centers such as Toledo or Solingen, but many differences in styling and hilt materials resulted from the local manufacture of hilts all over Europe.

"A little too flexy, in my opinion. This is of course for safety in the thrust, but I feel like it could have been a tiny bit stiffer. Overall it doesn't make a huge difference."
