If you're looking for a great Three Musketeers style rapier, then this is your Huckleberry. Astoundingly attractive, light and un-adverbially cool.

The Stormblade Swept Hilt rapier has two main strengths -- It's artistically sweeping cage and its balance and lightness. You can see for yourself the beautiful lines on the hilt. Swirling first one way, then the other. Simple, elegant and attractive. AS far as the weight, it is unmatched by most high-carbon, hand forged rapiers: A perfect rapier for double-time fencing.

How do we get it so well balanced? Glad you asked; The balance is attributable to a couple of different factors. First, the blade is a good inch or two shorter than most hand-forged rapiers. Second, the blade is a good 1/4 inch thinner than most hand forged rapiers. Third, it's a magic sword. Honestly. Well, okay, we can't really prove that, so... Third, the angled and one-sided swept hilt uses very little steel while maintaining a triple connection for strength.

Not to say the Stormblade is not tough. The hand-forged high-carbon steel blade is as tough as most of our other rapier blades, and the full tang ensures that there won't be any broken-hilt surprises in store for you when battling with it.

Another Unique feature of this rapier is the cornered scabbard. Made of wood and wrapped with leather, the scabbard is actually rectangular, with visible corners. This lets it rest firmly against thigh or hip, and also gives tidier, more geometric appearance. It's a different look for a sword that is all about different looks.

The lightness of this rapier makes it ideal for the stage, or for carrying around for long periods of time. Women might also find this rapier satisfying (to hold, that is), although it originally was meant to mimic musketeer type rapiers used by men.

A lovely sword
I purchased this for my teen daughter's birthday and have so far been very pleased with the blade. While I'd prefer a slightly different wrap on the handle and less of a gap on the ricasso, the sword is excellent for the price and has held up well in practice cuts.
