17th Century Italian Style Rapier Swords Complex Hilt & Faceted Pommel
Pair Of Matching 17th Century Italian Style Rapier Swords, Complex Hilt and Faceted Pommel, The Grip is Hand-Wound.
Developed in the 1500s from Spanish dress swords, the historical rapier gained popularity in the 16th and 17th centuries as a slender sharply pointed thrusting sword used in unarmored combat. Ideal for self-defence, civilian rapiers became lighter and shorter over time, whereas military rapiers evolved into colichemarde swords and small swords. Due to a lack of distinguishing terminology during their period of historical use, Renaissance rapiers can encompass a wide range of styles often influenced by the countries in which they were used.
