Practical Rapier, approx. 94 cm Blade
Hanwei developed a number of weapons for the Renaissance
fencer e.g. Hilt and Cup-Hilt Rapiers.
The Schlaeger Rapiers utilize a popular swept hilt, modified to accommodate
our schlaeger blades in approx. 94 cm (item code HN-SH1099) and approx. 109 cm (item code HN-SH1098) lengths. These tapered
blades provide a superior balance compared to the traditional parallel-sided schlaegers, making for a faster sword.
/>The Hanwei 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.
The Main Gauche, or left hand dagger, was
often used with the rapier, providing an added dimension in both offense and defense, and the "Schools of Fence" which
proliferated in Europe during this period taught the use of the two weapons in combination. The Main Gauche would often match
the Rapier in styling, while incorporating features which maximized the effectiveness of the piece. Replacement blades, both
live and blunt (for sparring), are available for most of the Rapiers and Main Gauches.
