Practical Rapier 37 Inch Blade
The Schlaeger Rapiers utilize a popular swept hilt, modified to accommodate our schlaeger blades in 37 (SH1099) and 43 (SH1098) lengths. These tapered blades provide a superior balance compared to the traditional parallel-sided schlaegers, making for a faster sword.
These Practical Renaissance-style Rapiers trace their origins to early 17th century Europe, where swordplay with the Rapier was considered an essential part of a gentlemans 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.
