CISH1098: Practical Rapier, 43" Blade

The Practical Rapier utilizes the popular hilt from the 1027SGT Rapier, modified to accomodate an SCA-approved 43" Schlager blade. The tapered blade form provides superior balance compared to the traditional parallel-sided schlagers of the same length, making for a faster sword. The high-carbon steel blade provides good flexibility and is button-tipped for safety.

Cons: None
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.
