Long extolled as the pinnacle of rapier design, the “Spanish” or “Cup-Hilt” rapier undoubtedly combined style and function very effectively in 17th century Europe. The very best of these weapons featured beautifully pierced cups and pommels and CAS Hanwei has replicated these to perfection and combined them with an elegantly tapered high-carbon steel blade in our “Taza” rapier (the name comes from the French, who called this style “a la Taza”). A leather-covered scabbard is included.A leather scabbard and belt frog are included.See model SH2035N for the antique-finished version of this sword.
