An Outstanding Deal

I'm a SCA fencer who needed a longer weapon option for some fights. This rapier was an excellent option for its price. The weapon is well crafted and finished. For a blade of it length, the balance is also good, largely due to the taper in the blade. It's even a pretty good looking weapon. The only thing that (barely) kept this from gettig an excellent rating is the whippy nature of the foible. The length of the blade is certainly part of the reason and given how nice the rapier is otherwise, I can live with it. But someone who likes a stiffer blade may not be happy.

Great for Loaner Gear

I purchased 2 of these for loaner gear for my SCA branch. They take the abuse well. They are fairly balanced and break down fairly easily for transport. They are great for the price.
